Evil Spirits is the new album of The Damned that came out Friday 13 April 2018.
This is the 11th album of the band released 10 years after their previous, So, Who’s Paranoid.
It was largely crowdfounded by Pledge Music and produced by Tony Visconti.
Paul Gray is back on bass (initially he contributed to The Black Album and Strawberries but left the band in 1983), replacing Stu West since September 2017.
The rest of the band are still there: Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Monty Oxy Moron, and Pinch.
I like the 10 tracks of Evil Spirits cause it takes the band a step further from So, Who’s Paranoid having a richer production and it is not only Tony Visconti that did a great job…
Since the first single of the album, Standing On the Edge of Tomorrow, came out, it was obvious that we’ll have to deal with well-crafted songs.
The Damned are throwing all their pop and psychedelic influences in the mix, offering us a beautiful and mature album.
Do not expect The Damned of the 70s punk rock band cause this is The Damned of the 21st century, and for sure you’ll have a good time with what they are doing…
