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.

The whole reasoning behind Remastering albums is to use modern technology to enhance old records that had been previously recorded using analog equipment.
This Manics album came out in 2007. Why even bother?? It's not an old classic from the 70s or 80s that needs a revamp. Such an embarrassment to fleece fans in this manner.
