British punk rock icons The Damned have given the world another fresh taste of their new material with the release of Procrastination for download/stream on Spotify. Procrastination is the third release from the already critically acclaimed album, Evil Spirits which was released on April 13th on Search And Destroy/Spinefarm Records. Look Left and Devil In Disguise were previously a double A side release.
Written by keyboard player Monty Oxymoron within the burst of creative activity that led to the recording of Evil Spirits with famed producer Tony Visconti in October of 2017 at Atomic Sound studios in Brooklyn, Procrastination is a pulsating, glam stomper that musically does anything but hesitate or stall, as its title might suggest.
“The song came together by accident really,” explains Monty. “I sent Captain the basic tune with some lyrics, but it didn’t have a chorus at that point; magically it all fitted with a totally separate instrumental piece that he had and it all slotted together perfectly!”
“Regarding the lyrics, I think everyone suffers from procrastination,” continues Monty. “We’re all capable of putting off the stuff we don’t want to do. I was in Glastonbury recently and got myself a T-shirt that sums it all up quite nicely; ‘procrastinators of the world unite…tomorrow!’
“Ahh yes, one of Monty’s, this one,” adds Captain Sensible. “A bit of self-analysis here: what could be the reason that this band’s last album was recorded back in 2008? It’s good to be able to laugh at yourself – well, at least I think he’s talking about himself there… Isn’t he? Or is it me? Blimey!”
