The Damned Tease DARKADELIC With You’re Gonna Realise

English punk rock legends The Damned are back with their 12th studio LP this month and You’re Gonna Realise is the last single prior to the release of DARKADELIC on April 28th… the day the world will see the dark in a whole new light.

Its sound is trademark Damned… a little punk, a little goth, but this time with a lot of other goodies mixed in. The mood is darkly psychedelic with nods to their influences and history. Sonically and lyrically, though, it blasts away at any notion of nostalgia.

David Vanian’s lyrics vow “You’re Gonna Realise the past is just the past.” Captain Sensible brings infectious charm and modern guitar crunch. New drummer Will Taylor adds a new kinda kick. Paul Taylor on bass neat neat neatly propels things along. Monty Oxymoron wraps it all up with madman keyboard runs and flourishes.

DARKADELIC catches the band once again evolving and expanding upon their unique universe and features some of The Damned’s sharpest songwriting and genre-bending performances. Alongside Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Paul Gray and Monty Oxymoron, William Granville-Taylor joins the band on drums.
