THE DAMNED THINGS (Anthrax, ETID, Fall Out Boy) Have an EP in the Works

by | Dec 12, 2016

It’s been several years since we’ve heard anything about The Damned Things. The band that features members of Anthrax, Every Time I Die, and Fall Out Boy put out their debut album Ironiclast in 2010, toured a bunch, and kept it quiet ever since. Will 2017 be the year for new music?

Looks like it… At least in the form of an EP anyway.

Fall Out Boy/The Damned Things drummer Andy Hurley did an interview and said he tracked a few songs for the band recently.

“I recorded 5 songs for an EP with The Damned Things. I don’t think we’ll be playing — Anthrax is still touring on their last record; ETID just put out their new record.”

The Damned Things includes Hurley with Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, Rob Caggiano (Volbeat, ex-Anthrax), and Fall Out Boy’s Joe Trohman.

And since we mentioned it, here’s Ironiclast in full:
