Dan Andriano (Alkaline Trio) Reportedly Joins The Damned Things

Scott Ian (Anthrax) has shared a new photo that seems to suggest that Dan Andriano (Alkaline Trio) has joined The Damned Things. Though not confirmed, some believe he could be replacing bassist Josh Newton (Shiner, ex-Every Time I Die), who is absent in the picture. Rob Caggiano (Volbeat, ex-Anthrax) recently confirmed his exit from the band as well, but as he said, the group already have enough guitarists, so it is unlikely that they will need to replace him. The band, which also features Keith Buckley (Every Time I Die), Joe Trohman (Fall Out Boy), and Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy), are currently booked for Welcome To Rockville (May 4) and Epicenter (May 11).
