The Damned Things

An Alkaline Trio Member Has Reportedly Joined Supergroup The Damned Things


There’s been little in the way of concrete information about this year’s return of supergroup The Damned Things, but that appears to have changed today. While Volbeat guitarist Rob Caggiano confirmed he was no longer involved and a new album has been hinted at, outside of two upcoming live shows, there hasn’t been much to go on regarding the band’s imminent return.

Guitarist Scott Ian (also of Anthrax) seems to have dropped a big hint via his Instagram earlier today—one that looks to confirm the addition of Alkaline Trio bassist Dan Andriano to the band’s ranks. The Damned Things mainstays Ian, Keith Buckley (Every Time I Die) and Fall Out Boy‘s Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley are also pictured.

Caggiano himself joked that the band already had enough guitarists upon his departure, thus it doesn’t seem like they sought out to replace him. But given the absence of The Damned Things‘ original bassist Josh Newton, (Shiner, ex-Every Time I Die) in this new photo as well, it appears that Andriano may be taking on his role.

Currently the band are booked for the following two shows:

05/04 Jacksonville, FL – Welcome To Rockville
05/11 Richmond County, NC – Epicenter Festival
