The Damned have announced a brand new album and released its lead single – listen to ‘Standing On The Edge Of Tomorrow’ below.

The London five-piece, who formed in 1976, will return with a new LP ten years after their last album release, 2008’s ‘So, Who’s Paranoid?’.

The Damned will release their new album, ‘Evil Spirits’, on April 13 via Search and Destroy / Spinefarm Records. The record’s lead single, ‘Standing On The Edge Of Tomorrow’, is out now – listen to it below, via Spotify.

‘Evil Spirits’, which can be pre-ordered now, was largely funded by a successful Pledge campaign and was produced by David Bowie collaborator Tony Visconti.

Speaking about recording the album in Brooklyn last year with Visconti, guitarist Captain Sensible said: “We deliberately recorded the album retro style – 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 specialises 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.”
