The Damned Things
Fall Out Boy News
If at some point in your 20s you didn’t slam a cheap shot down your neck with a beer chaser and then jump around like an idiot when Sugar came on, you haven’t lived.
The Damned Things is an incredible metal outfit formed by Guitarist Joe Trohman (Fall Out Boy), Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy), Keith Buckley (Every Time I Die), and Scott Ian of thrash kings Anthrax.
They released their debut album, ‘Iconiclast’, in 2010 and it is still a brutal record to this very day!
Joe Trohman met Scott Ian in an Italian restaurant in Los Angeles about 12-15 years ago, and Trohman got to discussing the idea of maybe putting together a side project based around classic rock, heavy metal with Scott Ian.
In a series of new interviews, Joe Trohman talks about new material from The Damned Things and the current line up change with Dan Andriano from Alkaline Trio.
“The chorus to the new single is like a wired 6 or 6 and a half 4-time signature...I did this sort of weird inspired by how the riff in Kashmir turns around where you want it to turn around which makes it a cool riff”.
Trohman also goes onto talk about the new line-up.
“Dan came to be involved with The Damned Things just of in a like natural way, basically we were making the record and I was playing all the base on the record at the time and because at that point, Josh Newton didn’t have time to do it anymore. So Keith Buckley had suggested Dan and Dan was just immediately down for it so he popped by my studio for a couple of days and I’m very glad he’s doing it.”
The new album from The Damned Things ‘HIGH CRIMES’ released 26th April. Pre-order via nuclearblast.com/
