The greatest surviving British punk band THE DAMNED are set to release their most comprehensive collection of songs yet with a new greatest hits collection  released via BMG. The career-spanning best of album includes an expansive 39 song track-list curated by the band themselves including upcoming brand new single ‘Black Is The Night’.

They chose designer Phil Smee to create the gothic artwork, Smee has worked with the band numerous times throughout their long-lasting career as well created legendary designs for Motörhead, Elton John and Madness amongst plenty of others. Smee commented: 

“I loved working with the band back in the 80’s and I like to think we came up with some iconic designs. Certainly I see the many Damned logos I came up with still used on t-shirts to this day. I’ve not cut corners with this new album, even setting all the sleeve copy by hand, which took me back to ‘The Black Album’ which I hand-lettered with a shaky pen. The Damned are a totally unique band, I’ve always loved everything they’ve done. I still get excited about every design project that comes along, but I was particularly pleased to be asked to work on The Damned’s ‘Black is the Night’ album.” - Phil Smee
