Preview: The Damned @ O2 Academy, 17/11/16

The Damned are a punk rock band that began during the peak of the British Punk scene in the second half of the 1970s, finding nearly immediate success after releasing their debut single ‘New Rose’ in 1976, making them the first punk band in Britain to release a single. Their 1977 album, Damned, Damned, Damned, helped pave the way for the gothic rock scene which would dominate British rock music following the punk explosion, as well as being responsible for influencing dozens of pioneering Hardcore bands across the water, with their fast-paced, and overtly aggressive style.

You can catch The Damned at next Thursday 17th at O2 Academy!
