Manic Street Preachers Announce New Album Tour & Tickets

Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers have announced details of a large-scale UK tour set to take place in autumn later this year.

The welsh trio are describing the new jaunt as their “most extensive UK tour ever” which will feature new material from what will be the band’s tenth studio album ‘Postcards From a Young Man’.

The speedy follow-up to last year’s ‘Journal For Plague Lovers’ is set to be released in September and lead singer James Dean Bradfield told NME that the new album is set to be much more of a mainstream record. “We're going for big radio hits on this one, it isn't a follow-up to 'Journal For Plague Lovers'. It's one last shot at mass communication".

That could indeed start the rumours that this will be the Manics’ last studio offering perhaps? However the band’s representatives could not confirm anything at the time of the announcement.

The tour will feature support from British Sea Power and will kick-off in Glasgow on September 29th. The tour was announced via a statement on the band’s official website reading: "Hello everyone. We've made some music, written some words. Our tenth album is being born. So 'Hey ho let's go' - time to tour. One last shot at mass communication. See you soon, Manic Street Preachers."

Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.

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.
