Manic Street Preachers To Launch New Album At London Gig

The Manic Street Preachers are to play an exclusive show in London next month, previewing new material featured on their latest album ‘Postcards From a Young Man’ which is set for release this September.

Planning to celebrating the release of the new album, the special show was revealed by Nicky Wire during an interview prior to the band’s Bilboa BBK Live festival performance last weekend.

According to Digital Spy, when Wire was asked about whether the band were planning to play the new material for their Spanish fans, the bassist replied with: "To be honest, I think we've got our launch gig in London and that's when we'll play the new stuff, in August. Today's just about a bit of payback for the fans that have stuck with us, so pretty much something from every album we try to do."

The Manics are not a band to keep quiet about an album release. In 2001 their launch party for ‘Know Your Enemy’ consisted of a special concert in capital city Havana, marking themselves as the first Western rock band to play a gig in Cuba. Members of their audience included the communist state leader Fidel Castro.

The Manic Street Preachers will release what will be their tenth studio album ‘Postcards From a Young Man’ on September 27th.
