Formed in 1976, The Damned are back with Eveil Spirits on April 13. The new record, to be released by Search and Destroy/Spinefarm Records, was recorded in Brooklyn last year with producer Tony Visconti (whose list of past working-relationships include David Bowie, T Rex, Morrissey, The Stranglers, and Iggy Pop).


“We deliberately recorded the album retro style,” explains guitarist Captain Sensible. “The same way our debut album was made, basically. There’s something wonderful about the seventies sounds; glam, rock and punk records, they all sound so great and Tony specializes in beautifully crafted old school production. He had us all playing live, bashing it out in the same room with a focus on getting the initial band version of each song as close as possible to the finished thing.“ Bassist Paul Gray (Black AlbumStrawberries) also returns to the line-up on the new recording.

TRACK LISTING: 

1. Standing On The Edge Of Tomorrow
2. Devil In Disguise
3. We’re So Nice
4. Look Left
5. Evil Spirits
6. Shadow Evocation
7. Sonar Deceit
8. Procrastination
9. Daily Liar
10. I Don’t Care

Catch the band on tour this January and February. Main support comes from fabled Stray Cats drummer Slim Jim Phantom (*except Koko), whilst support at Koko and The Forum comes from Kristeen Young.
