The Damned Things, featuring Anthrax’s Scott Ian, announce their long-awaited return with today’s release of their new single, ‘Cells’, taken from their forthcoming album High Crimes due out April 26 via Nuclear Blast Records. The video for the track, directed by Brandon Dermer (Panic! At The Disco, Nekrogoblikon), can be watched here:

“Normally, when career bands say they made a record for fun, they didn’t – but we actually did. Maybe that’s why this band doesn’t have a career?” said The Damnded Things’ Joe Trohman“Anyway, we’re genuinely proud of it. Check it out, and watch the video to see how severely injured we got during the process!”

High Crimes was produced by Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour, Amon Amarth) and is the follow up to 2010’s hugely successful debut album, Ironiclast.
