We want our audience to take a deep dive with the latest lyrics by THE DAMED:
LOSING TRACK OF THE DAYS AND IT HASN’T EVEN REALLY BEEN THAT LONG NOT GOOD FOR HYPOCHONDRIACS OR EVEN WORSE THE GERMAPHOBES FIGHT ISOLATION WITH ALL YOU GOT HEARTS PUMPING FULL OF CREATIVITY TRY NOT TO PANIC GIVE INTO FEAR I KNOW IT’S HARD WHEN YOU THINK THE END IS NEAR CITIES ARE IN FULL LOCKDOWN SOME CIVILIANS STILL IN DENIAL THEY SAY IT'S AGAINST YOUR RIGHTS HOW DO YOU STOP IT IF YOU DON’T STAY INSIDE A BROKEN RECORD FOR THE ELITE HISTORY, ALWAYS REPEATS SMALL BUSINESSES ARE SUFFERING WHILE CORPORATIONS GET A BIG BAIL OUT FIGHT ISOLATION WITH ALL YOU GOT HEARTS PUMPING FULL OF CREATIVITY TRY NOT TO PANIC GIVE INTO FEAR I KNOW IT’S HARD WHEN YOU THINK THE END IS NEAR LOST DAYS... THESE ARE THE LOST DAYS

What are your favorite lyrics from the single Lost Days? The chorus:
FIGHT ISOLATION WITH ALL YOU GOT HEARTS PUMPING FULL OF CREATIVITY TRY NOT TO PANIC GIVE INTO FEAR I KNOW IT’S HARD WHEN YOU THINK THE END IS NEAR What kind of pull did you feel about making Lost Days? THE DAMED: It helped to write this song to navigate the fear and isolation I was experiencing. Are all your writing sessions collaborative or do you go off on your own? Do you have a preference? THE DAMED: I mostly write solely and then bring a song idea into band practice and collaborate and shape it more as a group. This usually gives it more dynamic. I also have had co-writing partners. I think both methods are fruitful. Do you ever compare the work you bring to the table? THE DAMED: No, not really. I just get inspiration and motivation from other works of music. What is standard practice when it comes to if the song is really finished? THE DAMED: After the song is played live enough times and is recorded/goes through more production is when I feel it is really complete. What was the goal for making Lost Days? THE DAMED: Documenting a historical time and the diverse emotional reactions. Providing an outlet/release for myself that hopefully others can also relate to since we are all dealing with this on a global level. Challenges to the new music that no one would know about? THE DAMED: Self-recording at home during the pandemic vs. in a studio with an engineer was more challenging. Favorite memory in the making of this music? THE DAMED: Developing a new song, crafting the tone and playing it while it's fresh is always fun and exciting. Is there anything off the table when it comes to bringing yourselves into your music? THE DAMED: Compromising the authenticity of the music to be more commercial. Leave us on a high note! And share some good news! THE DAMED: We will be releasing a music video for this song on April 1!
