Manic Street Preachers

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING 2009’s cathartic Journal For Plague Lovers, the Manic Street Preachers have announced details of their tenth studio album, as well as a massive UK tour.

Postcards From A Young Man will be released in September and is being billed as a return to the classic rock roots of Send Away The Tigers and the arena sized choruses of Everything Must Go.

The band is currently adding finishing touches to the record with producer Dave Eringa at their Cardiff studio. Mixing will take place later this month with Chris Lord Alge in America.

To coincide with the release the band will undertake their most extensive UK tour ever, with support from British Sea Power.
