The punk icons play 'Damned, Damned, Damned’ and ‘Black Album' at 11 UK shows

The Damned are set to mark their 35th anniversary by playing two classic albums back to back on an 11 date UK tour this November.

Following a tour of the United States this October, the punk legends return to their native Great Britain to play both 1977’s ‘Damned, Damned, Damned’ and 1980’s ‘Black Album’ at a string of dates across the country, starting November 9 at Bristol O2 Academy.

Of their 35th anniversary, Captain Sensible of the band says:

Whole musical genres have come and gone in the time this band has been playing. We just try to make music that we enjoy, and if other people are into it, that is a bonus. We certainly never made music to follow any trends. We must be doing something right because after 35 years, we still meet fans and musicians all over the world that blame us for corrupting their youth!
