The Damned have signed a new record deal with Search & Destroy – the joint venture label between Raw Power Management and Universal’s Spinefarm Records – to release their first album for almost a decade. The band are set to head into the studio over the summer to record the follow-up to 2008’s ‘So, Who’s Paranoid?’

The band’s manager, Jamal Chalabi, says: “There was so much enthusiasm from the guys at Search & Destroy for working with The Damned that we had no hesitation in signing to the label. They are passionate music fans who run a successful, global business and I have no doubts they will do a great job on this new album”.

Raw Power CEO Craig Jennings adds: “The Damned are one of my all-time favourite bands and a massive influence on my own musical worldview. Their impact on subsequent generations of bands cannot be underestimated and we are looking forward to releasing their first new album for almost a decade”.

The new deal comes off the back of a 40th anniversary tour by the band.
