The Damned

Ahead of their upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand, The Damned have released ‘Beware of the Clown’ – the second single from ‘Darkadelic’ their 12th studio album which will be out on 28 April. The new track was written by founding member Captain Sensible to deride what he calls the “conveyor belt of bozos” who lead us and was produced by Tom ‘Mitch’ Mitchener.

‘Beware of the Clown’ is vintage Damned with its lacerating social commentary and is accompanied by a gloriously impertinent video, starring the Captain as a jester politician. The video was directed by Martin Gooch, watch it below.
