|Manic Street Preachers Send Away The Tigers Limited 10 Year Collectors Edition Vinyl 2LP Set
Manic Street Preachers get set for the spring/summer of 2017 with a selection of activities both release-wise and live. Having recently moved into a new studio outside Newport after leaving their Cardiff base in the Autumn of 2016, they are about to start work on a new album, the follow up to 2014’s critically acclaimed No. 2 album ‘Futurology’.
Their eighth album ‘Send Away The Tigers’ enjoys its 10th Anniversary and a very special edition is being released with a double CD + DVD bookset, double vinyl (with download codes) and digital versions available on 12th May 2017. The bookset features the original album remastered by James Dean Bradfield, unheard demos, a bonus disc of b-sides and rare tracks plus a DVD of their full 2007 Glastonbury set, promo videos and rare/never-before-seen footage from rehearsals. Nicky Wire has also contributed handwritten lyrics and imagery from his personal archive.
Prior to this, Sky Arts will be screening a documentary on 15th April of ‘Escape From History’ – an updated version of Manics collaborator and Bafta award-winning director Kieran Evans’ original film which was released with the 20th Anniversary version of their 4th album ‘Everything Must Go’. The film describes the period after original guitarist Richey Edwards went missing and the remaining three members starting the recording of the new album, culminating in the band massive arena shows, and Brit Awards win.
James Dean Bradfield also composed the soundtrack to a new independent film released on 10th March. ‘The Chamber’ is a claustrophobic survival thriller, set below the Yellow Sea and described as a “new sound from Bradfield and adds to the dark and atmospheric mood of the film”. The album was released on Sony Classics on the same day as the film.
