Damian tweeted out this photo with the caption, “Now that’s a band.” And from his Instagram account he shared, “Meet the band.” The photo was taken just outside of Creation Studios, a music studio and luthier located in the heart of Camden, London on Kentish Town Road and Royal College Street. We’re guessing they were either renting some rehearsal space or laying down some tracks for Damian’s upcoming debut album set to be released this summer. Can’t wait!
