MANIC STREET PREACHERS Celebrates 10th Anniversary of "Send Away the Tigers" on May 12th w/ Double CD/Vinyl Set
MANIC STREET PREACHERS get set for 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 folio book, double gatefold vinyl (with download codes) and a digital version available on May 12, 2017. Featuring all audio remastered by James Dean Bradfield of the original album, there will also be unheard demos, a bonus disc of b-sides and rare tracks; a DVD of their full 2007 Glastonbury set; promo videos and rare/never seen before footage from rehearsals. Nicky Wire has also contributed handwritten lyrics and imagery from his personal archive.
"Send Away The Tigers was a very important record for us, it gave us a new lease of life and helped us to rediscover our love of the band. This edition helps to tell the whole story. Through demos, home recordings and hand-written lyrics you find intimate details of a band about to reinvent themselves.” - Manic Street Preachers
James Dean Bradfield has also composed the soundtrack to a new independent film released on March 10th. 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 is released on Sony Classics on the same day as the film.
