DAMIEN DONE “Charm Offensive”
LP - $12.00
STREET DATE: 4/20/18
CAT #: MOM041
LABEL: Mind Over Matter
Damien Done returns with his first full-length effort, Charm Offensive -- an album laden with tales of blackmail, voyeurism, secrecy and guilt.
Still nodding to the doom-tinged rock’n’roll of his previous releases, Charm Offensive now sees Damien Done exploring a lush, gloomy pop frontier, at times calling to mind the shimmering black art of Tears for Fears, Billy Idol or Echo & The Bunnymen.
Charm Offensive is dense and unsettling, but strangely sweet and impossibly distinct.

- Damien Done will be embarking on a European tour in August, with a slot at the Ieper Hardcore Festival alongside Converge, Shelter, Comeback Kid and more!
- Damien Moyal is best known for his role as the frontman for As Friends Rust in the late 90s/early 00s, but has also dabbled in seminal bands such as Shai Hulud, Morning Again and Culture before finally settling into this "solo" act.
- “... a doom-laden glimpse into a brooding, sufferingly-aware but ultimately unconquered perspective, delivered in songs that are both immediately memorable and slow to unravel. A brilliant debut and a clinic on aging artistically with grace.” - DW (Razorcake)
- “Macho new wave with a sense of humor and self-loathing, the eternally clever Damien Done has taken post-hardcore to an all new level, channeling what feels like Joy Division, Nick Cave and 80s pop all distorted through his own unique lens.” - Dwid Hellion (Integrity)
