      The Damned Things

      with Crobot, He Is Legend
      THE DAMNED THINGS what are they? Why are they? These are questions NOONE ever asks. And yet, here we are...9 wee years ago, Scott Ian - guitarist, beard-man and co-founder of legendary thrashmetal outfit, ANTHRAX - took a meeting with the lowly Joe Trohman (also a guitarist,and a co-founder, of the band FALL OUT BOY). While Joe had no beard to speak of,he and Scott hit it off, and started making songs together. Weird, right? Well, they bothlove Thin Lizzy, and catchy, dirty rock n roll music and doggone, they were going tomake some of that greasy stuff!So, with the help of Cross Fit enthusiast/drummer Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy) and thesensual yet sardonically irreverent vocals of Keith Buckley(EVERY TIME I DIE), TheDamned Things were formed.Some other guys played other instruments too at some point and thats all fine, IFTHIS WERE A DANG BOOK! All that matters is that Dan Andriano of ALKALINETRIO is on bass now.The Damned Things first album in 8 years - HIGH CRIMES - comes out April 2019on NUCLEAR BLAST. Why make a record 8 years later? It wasnt planned, that was forsure. But the lore goes: Joe Trohman started writing songs secretly, scantily clad andafraid. He then played them for the rest of the band. They said Ok, I guess well makethis. Then everyone texted their parts over to producer Jay Ruston and...VOILA! 2019,what a time to be alive!
