The Damned share “Black is the Night” from upcoming “definitive best-of”


The Damned are releasing a new career-encompassing anthology, titled Black is the Night, that’s out November 1 via BMG. This “definitive best of” is a four-LP / two-CD set that goes from “Love Song” through tracks from last year’s Tony Visconti-produced Evil Spirits. It’s also got a new song which gives the compilation its title. “Black is the Night” is a quintessential Damned song, where gothy drama meets Spaghetti Western, falling somewhere between “Wait for the Blackout,” “Thanks for the Night” and their cover of Love’s “Alone Again Or.” You can listen to “Black is the Night,” and check out the comp’s tracklist, below.

Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible and the rest of The Damned will be in NYC this month to open for Misfits at Madison Square Garden on October 19 with Rancid also on the bill. Danzig says “No more Misfits shows after MSG” — tickets are still available.
