Manic Street Preachers / Resistance is Futile / new album due in April

Almost two months after they announced it via their website, the Manic Street Preachers have made their 13th studio album Resistance Is Futile available to pre-order via channels other than their own website.

The band have recorded the new album (their first in four years) at their new studio near Newport after they were forced to vacate their Faster studio, which had been a recording, rehearsal base and general ‘hangout’ since 2005.

The 12-track album is described by the band as “widescreen melancholia” and will be available in the now familiar two-CD deluxe hardcover bookset which includes a bonus disc of the entire album in demo form and two bonus tracks.

The deluxe edition will be limited and you can pre-order that format from the SDE shop right now (worldwide shipping) along with the black vinyl.

Resistance is Futile is released on 6 April 2018.

Other pre-order links will be added to this post when available.
