The Damned Announce Tour with Bassist Paul Gray
Iconic UK punk band The Damned will be heading out on the road to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their third album, Machine Gun Etiquette. The tour will be extra special as bassist Paul Gray, who played the band during their Black Album and Strawberries era, will be holding down the low end. Gray rejoined the group last year for their 2018 release, Evil Spirits, which was produced by Tony Visconti. The rest of the lineup includes Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Monty Oxymoron, and Pinch.
The Damned will begin with a pair of dates at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach, California later this month before heading to the Midwest for a handful of shows. They’ll return to California in July for a date and will round out the list of shows with a performance at the Muddy Roots Festival in Cookeville, Tennessee at the end of August.
