Supergroup The Damned Things are working on a new EP.

The band features Andy Hurley and Joe Trohman of Fall Out Boy, Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die, Scott Ian of Anthrax, Rob Caggiano of Volbeat and former Anthrax and Every Time I Die ex-bassist Josh Newton. Their sole release was 2010’s debut album, Ironiclast.

Hurley says they’d have to wait until everyone’s schedules are cleared before they take their next record on tour.

He told 100 Words Or Less: “I recorded five songs for an EP with The Damned Things. I don’t think we’ll be playing, Anthrax is still touring on their last record. Every Time I Die just put out their new record. Who else?

“I think Josh Newton has been playing lately. He tech’d for Joe for awhile, I’m not sure if he’ll be back when we’re back. So you know, that’s all over the place.”

Further release details will be revealed in due course.

Anthrax announced a 2017 UK tour on which they will perform 1987 album Among The Living in its entirety to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Volbeat have also confirmed a “truly special” European tour in August and September next year.
