The Damned are reforming their original, classic line-up of vocalist Dave Vanian, guitarist Brian James, bassist Captain Sensible and drummer Rat Scabies for four UK shows next year.

The legendary British punk quartet, who released their debut single “New Rose” almost exactly 44 years ago on October 22nd, 1976, will play four headline dates in London, Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester in July 2021. The tour will celebrate The Damned’s 45th anniversary, and the setlist will draw upon the quartet’s first two albums, Damned Damned Damned and Music For Pleasure, which was produced by Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason.

Tickets for the tour go on sale on Friday, October 23rd.

The band’s eleventh studio album, the Tony Visconti-produced Evil Spirits, was released in April 2018.
