The Damned to Release New Album 'DARKADELIC'

February 01, 2023

46 years after releasing the groundbreaking debut, Damned Damned DamnedThe Damned return with DARKADELIC, their twelfth studio album and their first one since 2018’s top ten release Evil Spirits. The Damned have announced their upcoming album, DARKADELIC via Ear Music and will be released April 28th and you can hear the latest Single, "The Invisible Man” on Racketeer Radio KFQX

The album catches the band that launched punk and invented goth once again innovating and expanding upon their unique universe. The lead single and video for “The Invisible Man” is a showcase for Captain Sensible’s riffadelic guitarwork and David Vanian’s snarling baritone vocals. DARKADELIC barrels along from there and features some of The Damned’s sharpest songwriting and genre-bending performances reaching peaks with future singles “You’re Gonna Realise” and “Beware of the Clowns” drenched in classic horror movie references, nods to swinging 60’s London, and a refined palette of musical influences. The Damned will indeed paint the world DARKADELIC in 2023.

In addition to their April 28th release of DARKADELIC, The Damned will be doing a UK/EU Tour beginning March 3rd. Here at Racketeer Radio KFQX will keep you updated on any tour information The Damned releases for any US dates.
