Heavy rock band THE DAMNED THINGS have released their long-awaited, highly- anticipated and critically celebrated second album, High Crimes, via Nuclear Blast Records.

Today, the band has debuted a lyric video for the record’s latest single, ‘Omen’ – watch below;

Commenting on the new single, vocalist Keith Buckley says, “some of us believe that we can stop making bad decisions if we just become more aware of the circumstances surrounding them, that we can read the signs- the omens- and say “I see what is coming, and I choose to avoid it.” but not all poor decisions are avoidable and an omen might just be the whistle of a train while you’re already tied to the rails. this song is about bracing for the impact of an unavoidable disaster.

High Crimes was produced by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR, AMON AMARTH) and is the follow up to 2010s hugely successful debut album, Ironiclast.

Nine years ago, Scott Ian – guitarist and co-founder of legendary thrash metal outfit, ANTHRAX – took a meeting with Joe Trohman (also a guitarist, and a co-founder, of the band, FALL OUT BOY). He and Scott hit it off and started making songs together. With the help of drummer Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy) and the irreverent vocals of Keith Buckley (EVERY TIME I DIE), THE DAMNED THINGS were formed. The band has gone through changes since its inception and now features Dan Andriano of ALKALINE TRIO on bass.
