Manic Street Preachers

Manic Street Preachers


Manic Street Preachers announce their return to active duty, with details of a new album and massive UK tour.

Resistance Is Futile – the band’s 13th studio album – is due for release in 2018.

Following the twin musical departures of 2013’s largely acoustic Rewind the Film and the glacial electronics of 2014’s Futurology, Resistance Is Futile heralds a return to a classic Manics sound described by the band as “widescreen melancholia”. The songs on the album are the first recorded in the band’s new Door to the River studio (near Newport).

To coincide with the release of Resistance Is Futile, the band have announced their biggest series of UK live shows in over a decade. Support on all dates comes from very special guests The Coral.

Manic Street Preachers recently received the Inspiration Award at the Q Awards at the Roundhouse in London. Previous winners include U2, David Bowie and Patti Smith.
