The Damned will also play Tomorrow’s Ghosts Festival, Whitby on April 25 and Bearded Theory Festival, Derbyshire on May 22.

A press release suggests the band are yet to confirm a new drummer following the departure of Pinch last year. Discussing the vacant position with Uncut recently, singer Dave Vanian said: “We may not even have a permanent drummer. It’s more likely we get a young drummer in to be honest, I’d like to have someone that’s young and full of enthusiasm rather than some old, jaded guy.”

Vanian effectively ruled out a return for founding Damned drummer Rat Scabies, saying: “Captain and Rat have got differences. I’ve tried to reconcile them but it’s a powder keg, those two in a room together. It’s ridiculous but there you go.”
