Joe Trohman took to his Tumblr and announced that The Damned Things most likely won’t be doing anything in 2012 due to the busy schedules of Every Time I Die and Anthrax. However, he says he and his TDT bandmate Josh Newton have started a new band called With Knives. Next month, the band will head to a studio in Kansas City to record an EP full of brand new songs, which they will then bring on the road with them. They plan to release the EP on their own via Son of Man, a clothing line created by Trohman that he wishes to evolve into an artist collective.
Trohman stated that this was not the end of The Damned Things, as they all still want to continue playing and writing together. It just needs to “fit into everyone’s busy schedules.”
