46 years after releasing the groundbreaking debut, “Damned Damned Damned”, The Damned return with “DARKADELIC”, their twelfth studio album and their first one since 2018’s Top Ten release “Evil Spirits”.
The album catches the band that launched punk and invented goth once again innovating and expanding upon their unique universe. The lead single and video for “The Invisible Man” is a showcase for Captain Sensible’s riffadelic guitar work and David Vanian’s snarling baritone vocals.
“DARKADELIC” barrels along from there and features some of The Damned’s sharpest songwriting and genre-bending performances reaching peaks with future singles “You’re Gonna Realise” and “Beware of the Clowns” drenched in classic horror movie references, nods to swinging 60’s London, and a refined palette of musical influences. The Damned will indeed paint the world DARKADELIC in 2023.
