THE DAMNED THINGS — what are they? Why are they? These are questions NO ONE ever asks. And yet, here we are…

9 wee years ago, Scott Ian - guitarist, beard-man and co-founder of legendary thrash metal 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 both love Thin Lizzy, and catchy, dirty rock ’n roll music — and doggone, they we’re going to make some of that greasy stuff!

So, with the help of Cross Fit enthusiast/drummer Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy) and the sensual yet sardonically irreverent vocals of Keith Buckley (EVERY TIME I DIE), The Damned Things were formed.

Some other guys played other instruments too at some point — and that’s all fine, IF THIS WERE A DANG BOOK! All that matters is that Dan Andriano of ALKALINE TRIO is on bass now.

The Damned Thing’s first album in 8 years - HIGH CRIMES - comes out April 2019 on NUCLEAR BLAST. Why make a record 8 years later? It wasn’t planned, that was for sure. But the lore goes: Joe Trohman started writing songs secretly, scantily clad and afraid. He then played them for the rest of the band. They said “Ok, I guess we’ll make this.” Then everyone texted their parts over to producer Jay Ruston and…VOILA! 2019, what a time to be alive!
