So far only 3 bands have been confirmed in support slots.

The Members - Guildford
Penetration - Leeds & Brixton
The Piranhas - Brighton.

Yes...those Piranhas. Brighton locals.
Looks like the plan is to get all the supports to be local and all be from the original wave.

That sounds like a good idea for a 40th anniversary tour!  8)

“There will be a measure of experimentation. Hopefully with Captain’s melodic guitars, we’ll have some good pop songs. But there will be a lot of music there, as well. It won’t all just be three-minute songs.”

It’s 10pm in Australia. It’s early morning in London. Captain Sensible, born Raymond Burns, fires stories of old at his computer like its running out of battery. Our Skype session has caught him bright and early at the studio in which The Damned is piecing together the makings of its 11th studio album. ...

The Damned is crowd funding its yet-to-be-titled forthcoming album off the back of a PledgeMusic campaign, a method to which he also admits naivety. “We did the pledge thing, which is amazing for an old fart like me to be dragged into the new millennium. I don’t recognise what happened to the music business. I’m not complaining or anything, because if people want to pay us to make a record, that’s great. We won’t have a record label breathing over our shoulder. We can do what ever we want now. To anybody who’s pledged: don’t worry, we won’t be pissing it up in the studio. Well, we might. 30 years ago, we definitely would have run off to the nearest boozer with that dosh and it would have been gone by now.

As for whether or not we will see new material take part in the tour set list, it seems to be in the hands of lady luck. “I don’t know if we’re going to finish it before we hit the road. We might have half, or even more than half finished. We haven’t even started rehearsing for the tour yet.”

Not that we care about charts, eh?  ;D

Well I don't really check the charts, so it's always a nice suprise when e.g. Iggy or The Damned make it in there!  8)
