West coast metal veterans Metal Church recently announced the release of their 12th full length studio album “Damned If You Do” via Nuclear Blast Records for December 7, 2018 (Rat Pak Records/America & King Records/Japan). The latest release is the follow-up to their highly successful 2016 album “XI”, which saw the return of legendary frontman Mike Howe. “Damned If You Do” is a cross between the band’s iconic “Blessing In Disguise” and “The Human Factor”.
Hot on the heels of the aforementioned announcement, Metal Church have released the first music video for the title track “Damned If You Do”. The song is quintessential Metal Church and showcases the sound that has garnered the band fans all around the globe, with its driving guitar riffs, punishing drum beat and instantly recognizable vocals.
Comments Mike Howe:
I hope the fans enjoy this first video, it really sets the tone for the entire album. We are doing our best to keep metal alive Metal Church style. Damned if we didn’t!
Adds Stet Howland:
From my first listen of the “Damned If You Do” demo I was blown away. From Mike’s “hummm” intro to Kurdt’s bad ass guitar riff to the infectious chorus, I was hooked! If I was any more excited people would have to call me “shit legs.” Hahaha.
