Damon Johnson / Preparing to unleash ‘Battle Lessons’ with first video

Damon Johnson and The Get Ready will launch their new album ‘Battle Lessons’ on 19 February 2021. The follow up to the 2019 album ‘Memoirs Of An Uprising’, Johnson is joined by Jarred Pope (Tom Keifer) and bassist Robbie Harrington (Steve Vai).

Written and recorded throughout 2020, the album was produced and mixed by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush, Mastodon), a connection Damon made whilst working with Nick with Black Star Riders.

The tracks see a return to his original hard-rock sound, feeding that fire he first discovered as a teenager playing Van Halen and AC/DC covers while in garage bands.

Johnson is enthusiastic about the project, telling us: “These songs are as good as I have been part of creating, ever in my whole career.”

Track Listing:
