The Damned Releasing Special Vinyl and CD Sets

the damned logo

The Damned will be releasing Another Live Album From The Damned on March 10, 2015 via Four Worlds Media, a special live album recorded at Manchester Academy during their 2010 tour. It is part of their Graveyard Chronicles series that features 21 songs and explores their unreleased and rare recordings, which many rarely seen on their set lists.

the damned another live album from the damned

February 19 celebrated the 38th anniversary of the release of The Damned’s debut album, Damned Damned Damned. Four Worlds Media with Let Them Eat Vinyl celebrates the UK punk stalwarts with a series of limited and special releases, including remastered reissues, multi-disc live cds, colored double vinyl pressings, and more.

So, Who’s Paranoid was the first new album from the band in seven years on its original release in 2008. Meticulously reworked, this cd reissue (colored double-vinyl released February 10), includes three bonus songs. Finally, Tiki Nightmare: Live In London captures the band at renowned Shepherds Bush Empire in 2002 while in support of their album Grave Disorder. The band burns through album standouts plus classics “New Rose” (covered by Orange Goblin on Small Stone Records Sucking The 70’s Pt. 2, released in 2006) and “Neat Neat Neat.” The colored double-vinyl set, released February 10, features nineteen songs.

the damned so whos paranoid

In addition, The Chiswick Singles… And Another Thing is a 24-song vinyl collection that includes A- and B-sides from the band’s years with Chiswick Records. Completely restored and remastered, the colored, double-vinyl set includes career highlights “I Just Can’t Be Happy Today,” “The History Of The World Pt. 2,” “Disco Man,” “Love Song,” and “Smash It Up.” Machine Gun Etiquette is the third album from the band. Far more experimental than their previous recordings, the album blended punk, psychedelia, and pop. Both saw North American release on January 27 on limited-edition colored, 140-gram vinyl. And still to come is the June 30 North American release of the deluxe hard cover, triple-vinyl pressing of The Black Album.

With the longest stable line-up in their multi-decade history, The Damned remain vital, energized, and ready for continued years of anarchy, chaos, and destruction.
