Manic Street Preachers have shared details of a reissue of 'Know Your Enemy'.

Due out on September 9, the expanded and remastered anniversary edition is described as a "radically reimagined" version of the Welsh trio's 2001 sixth studio album.

It has been ntirely remixed and reconstructed to form two separate albums, 'Solidarity' and 'Door To The River', as the band originally planned, and will be available digitally and as a 3CD bookset, double CD and double vinyl.

The reissue will include two previously unheard tracks, Studies In Paralysis and Rosebud, with the latter available online. It's a contemplative song that builds on a Hammond organ melody foundation. Watch the Kieran Evans-directed video below. 

Manic Street Preachers’ last studio LP came in the form of 2021's 'The Ultra Vivid Lament'. They'll appear at Latitude Festival in Suffolk and Y Not? Festival in Derbyshire later in July, followed by a slot at Lakefest in Herefordshire in August.
