The Damage Done Bio:
Seattle’s The Damage Done will play anywhere and everywhere, bringing a house-show aura to whatever stage they find themselves on. Their ultimate goal is to put on the best performance possible whilst keeping an open dialogue between those who are watching and those who are performing. Since April of 2007, they have recorded a self-released EP at Bear Creek Studios and an (as of yet) unreleased full-length titled Scream All of Our Cliches at Magnets Large & Small Studios. They were featured on the Basement Records compilation Wrong Side of the Trax released in 2008, as well as digital compilations released by Solidarity Records and Seattle Punk.org. They’ve traveled out to Wantage USA’s Total Fest 2008, and hit the road on several west coast tours. They have also embarked on shorter jaunts including dates with Polar Bear Club, The Riot Before, Off With Their Heads, and Brainworms. Whatever you wish to classify their sound as—pop, punk, hardcore, or rock n’ roll—they possess an undeniable knack for catchy hooks and infectious sing-along choruses. A perfect compliment to many styles of underground rock, the boys have shared the stage/floor/backyard with a wide variety of touring and local acts including Broadway Calls, The Measure, Bridge and Tunnel, The Copyrights, The Old Haunts, A Wilhelm Scream, The Hollowpoints, The Flatliners, Speaker Speaker, Glass and Ashes, Mike Park, Time Again, Pierced Arrows, A Static Thought, Akimbo, Star Fucking Hipsters, Anchor Down, M.D.C., Defiance, Like Claws!, and The Real Mackenzies. The Damage Done, favorites on KGRG 89.9 FM, can be heard on a daily basis on radios throughout the northwest.
A teen center in Arizona, an unsavory bar in Eugene, Oregon, the basement of a hall in Missoula, an art space in Seattle, a bookstore in Salt Lake City: all of these are places in which The Damage Done have lived their dreams and dirtied their bare feet, fracturing personal relationships and wearing down touring vessels. They’ve spent countless hours writing poetry on napkins and songs in Walmart parking lots. Why do they do this? For the love of the music, and the adventure of it all!
The boys are currently anticipating a four-way split including some of the Northwest’s finest punk rock on Solidarity Records and a west coast tour by way of Awesome Fest III in September of 2009. If you are interested in this group of gentlemen, give Scream All of Our Cliches a spin, or better yet, come out to a show! They should be coming through your town soon and you will not be disappointed. If you bring some friends and beers down to the basement, they’ll provide the entertainment!
