California’s socially and politically charged all female punk three piece, The Damed, have dropped their debut self-titled album to universal praise from fans and absolute shock from their adversaries.

The sarcastic, aggressive lyrics are thrusted at you like knives while still maintaining a comforting catchy melody.
