The Damned Things have announced their long-awaited return recently with the release of their new singles, “Cells” and “Something Good”, off their forthcoming album High Crimes due April 26 via Nuclear Blast Records. In the third album trailer released today, you will get to hear the full story of how the two guitarists Joe Trohman (Fall Out Boy)and Scott Ian (Anthrax) met for the very first time.
High Crimes was produced by Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour, Amon Amarth) and is the follow up to 2010’s hugely successful debut album, Ironiclast
Nine years ago, Scott Ian – guitarist and co-founder of legendary thrash metal outfit, Anthrax – took a meeting with Joe Trohman (also a guitarist, and a co-founder, of the band Fall Out Boy). He and Scott hit it off and started making songs together. With the help of drummer Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy) and the irreverent vocals of Keith Buckley(Every Time I Die), The Damned Things were formed. The band has gone through changes since its inception and now features Dan Andriano of Alkalin Trio on bass.
