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."

29 September GLASGOW, Academy
