First wave U.K. punks the Damned today announced a 40th anniversary U.S. tour that includes an Orlando stop in 2017.

The band is set to play the House of Blues on May 12, 2017 at 7 p.m.

The Damned hold the dubious distinction of being the first punk band to release wax, in their case the "New Rose" single on indie label Stiff. This isn't even a reunion tour as such, the band has been going strong (in one form or another) since they started four decades ago. Indeed the band promises a new album ready for the tour.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, Oct. 28 at 10 a.m. and hats off to the punks, they're holding the price steady at a flat $19.
