    Biography

    The Damned Things were a heavy metal supergroup consisting of Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley of Fall Out Boy, Scott Ian of Anthrax, Rob Caggiano of Volbeat (formerly of Anthrax) and Keith Buckley and Josh Newton of Every Time I Die. The band's name is inspired by the lyrics in Ram Jam's 1977 version of "Black Betty". The band is currently on an indefinite hiatus;[4] all members are now working with their original bands.

    In 2008, Joe Trohman and Scott Ian met and began writing music together. They invited Keith Buckley, Rob Caggiano and Andy Hurley soon after. The band played its first show at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, New York, on June 1, 2010, and their first UK show in London at Heaven on June 10. They also played on the second stage at the Download Festival on June 13, 2010, and on the Helvíti stage at the Copenhell Festival on June 12, 2010. The first single, "We've Got a Situation Here", was released on iTunes on October 25, 2010. The songs "Ironiclast" and "We've Got a Situation Here" were released together as a 7" vinyl and CD single on November 26, 2010, through Metal Club stores. On October 21, 2010, the band released the song "Friday Night (Going Down In Flames)" via their Facebook and Myspace, as well as their first album's artwork.
