On the single, the Mary Chain said: “Side D of the ‘Sunset 666’ vinyl is taken from the December 11 2018 show at The Hollywood Palladium with Nine Inch Nails and includes a few of our favourite songs from ‘Automatic’ to play live. This version of “Half Way To Crazy” really gets the energy of that night.”Set for release on double LP vinyl, CD and digital, ‘Sunset 666’ sees the Mary Chain deliver a set of classics with a composed intensity.
