The band comments on the new single, "'The King I Was' is one of our favorites of 'II: BETTER IN BLACK,' with all the good stuff we like: heavy riffs, magic hooklines and shredding guitars. We hope you dig it, too. Let us know, what you think. To give you something more alongside the new tune, we dug out two rare version of songs from the debut. The single‘s tracklist reads as follows:"

"'Simplify' has been played at almost every show since the band started, but this version is special: It was recorded in Wacken in 2010, when we - deprived of sleep, but high on adrenaline - attacked the tent stage like a overheated godzilla. Most of the performance couldn‘t exactly be called 'subtle,' but it definitely had some attitude, and this is what counts. Maybe that‘s why we pulled out a little blues jam at the beginning. After all, the working title of this song was "ZZ Pussy' years ago..."

"'The Man Who Saw The Universe' comes of our debut as well, a little rock tune that one was called „Fabsrocklizzy“. We first played a stripped-down version like this at the night of Fludid‘s wedding, not exactly sober and/or rehearsed, but much to the amusement of the guest. And us. So we decided to share this with you. If you can‘t find it where you live - let us know at tnb@thenewblackofficial.de And please spread the word! Might it be via Facebook, mail or morse code - we're grateful anyway..."
