West coast metal veterans Metal Church will release their 12th full length studio album "Damned If You Do" via Nuclear Blast Records on December 7th 2018 (Rat Pak Records/America & King Records/Japan). The latest release is the follow-up to their highly successful 2016 album XI, which saw the return of legendary front man Mike Howe. "Damned If You Do" is a cross between the band's iconic "Blessing In Disguise" and "The Human Factor." This new offering features ten fully-charged, classic-metal influenced songs showcasing the sound that has garnered the band a solid fan base for over 3 decades.

Hot on the heels of the aforementioned announcement, Metal Church have released the first music video for the title track "Damned If You Do." The song is quintessential Metal Church and showcases the sound that has garnered the band fans all around the globe, with its driving guitar riffs, punishing drum beat and instantly recognizable vocals. The live performance video can be seen below.

Mike Howe comments: "I hope the fans enjoy this first video, it really sets the tone for the entire album. We are doing our best to keep metal alive Metal Church style. Damned if we didn't!"

Stet Howland adds, "From my first listen of the 'Damned If You Do' demo I was blown away. From Mike's 'hummm' intro to Kurdt's bad ass guitar riff to the infectious chorus, I was hooked! If I was any more excited people would have to call me 'shit legs'. Hahaha."
