LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — British gloom punk legends The Damned announced plans for a fall tour of North America.
The Evil Spirits tour kicks off in time for Halloween at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston on October 17th and will see The Damned cross the U.S. before wrapping at the Fonda Theater on Los Angeles on Nov. 2nd.
The Damned are touring in support of their eleventh studio album “Evil Spirits” which they released in April, largely with funding from a successful PledgeMusic crowdfunding campaign.
The album features production work by the noted producer Tony Visconti, who is best known for his work with David Bowie and Angelique Kidjo.
“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 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,” Damned frontman Raymond “Captain Sensible” Burns said in a 2017 interview.
The tour will also feature support from American garage rock brother trio Radkey and the Arizona-based psychedelic garage rock group The Darts.
