Notoriously referred to by Motörhead’s Lemmy (RIP) as “the only real punk band”, the legendary British punk pioneers, The Damned, have announced their return to Australia and New Zealand for a series of highly anticipated shows in June.
Forged in the hot fire of first wave punk and highly regarded for their riotous live shows and formidable stage presence, The Damned are the greatest surviving British punk band, still firing on all cylinders, breaking all the rules for their brash fusion of frenetic punk rock and gothic influences, and are often regarded alongside The Clash and Sex Pistols as a seminal force in driving the genre’s popularity.
Formed in 1976, The Damned’s career spans over four decades, releasing numerous acclaimed albums, including Damned Damned Damned, Machine Gun Etiquette, and Phantasmagoria. The upcoming tour will see the band perform classic hits as well as tracks from their forthcoming album, DARKADELIC, set for release on April 28th.
Tickets are on sale Friday 17 March at 11amAEDT, BUT eager fans can get early access to pre-sale tickets from Thursday 16 March by signing up up here.
