The Manics seem to have been with us for an eternity. Throughout their illustrious career and extensive back catalogue they’ve often divided opinion, some times brilliant, sometimes not; but always true to themselves. Wales biggest export since the Tories shut the mines are set to release new album Postcards From A Young Man on 20 September.
To celebrate they’ve made a new track ‘I’m Leaving You For Solitude’ available for free download from their website. The album is said to be a return to ‘classic rock roots’ and ‘arena-sized choruses’, take from that what you will but it’s safe to say there will be some suedo leftwing sentiments thrown in for good measure too.
