Celebrated purveyors of heavy rock The Damned Things have released their second single 'Something Good', taken from the band’s eagerly anticipated, upcoming album, High Crimes, due April 26 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Vocal powerhouse Keith Buckley comments on the new song: “'Something Good' is a feel-good song about feeling bad. It's about hurting people you care about because it is not in your nature to do the right thing even when you want to. A dark moral story with a really sunny feel.”
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 Alkaline Trio on bass.
