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.

Baxter Dury, Étienne De Crécy, Delilah Holiday - B.E.D (Album Review)
Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.
Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.
