New Manic Street Preachers Album

Not sure how many Manics fans are still hanging around Bang and Clatter, but here's some news for you...

There's a note posted on the Manics' official website saying that they are working on a new album right now with Steve Albini. What's surprising to me is that they are using lyrics written by Richey before he disappeared, saying that it finally feels like the right time to record these songs. Working titles are "Journal for Plague Lovers" and "I Know I Believe in Nothing but It Is My Nothing," and the album is tentatively scheduled for release next April or May.

I have to say, this sounds extremely intriguing.

I love Manics, particularly the first 3 albums they did with Richey. Not as fond of their more commercial stuff since although 'Send Away the Tigers' was a very promising album proving they still have lots more to give. I think they are one of the last truly unique rock n' roll bands, can't wait to hear what this will be like.

Can't help but think that the music will have to be like their early albums, the song titles sound like they would fit on Generation Terrorists.

I'm not a big fan of Send Away the Tigers, but I'm a huge Lifeblood and This is my Truth... lover. I still have to seriously check out their older stuff.

^ Really do. The Holy Bible is probably the darkest, bleakest rock album ever written.

That makes two of us. I thought it was pure shit the first couple times I listened to it, but I semi-enjoyed it the last time I heard it so hopefully my feelings will change. I'm not entirely sure if I think using Richey's lyrics is cool or lame and grasping at straws at this point. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

It makes sense to me that if you're not familiar with their older stuff, Send Away the Tigers wouldn't exactly be your favorite. Of their last few albums, I think it's the one that most hearkens back to their earliest music and moves away from the more mature sounds of Lifeblood and This Is My Truth.

Definitely check out their older stuff if you have the chance, though, especially The Holy Bible. It's probably my favorite album ever, and I mean that sincerely. Their first two albums, Generation Terrorists and Gold Against the Soul, are worthy acquisitions too, and they'll definitely introduce you to their harder, more punk roots, which I think will also explain a lot of Send Away the Tigers for you.

I wonder if JD can get back his "angry vocal" like he had on the first few albums?

I've been very curious about this. I've been a sort of passive Manics fan for years, but I finally picked up the Holy Bible this summer and it changed my entire opinion on them. "Yes" is the most raw thing I think I've ever heard. I also loved "Send Away the Tigers," and of course "Everything Must Go," but the other albums don't do quite as much for me. As a singles band, though, they're probably the best band since the Smiths.

What's the best place to start if I wants to get into these Manic Street Preachers? It seems that the Holy Bible might be their most acclaimed album? Thanks!
