Manic Street Preachers have unveiled the video of their new single ‘This Is The Day’, a cover of the 1983 track by The The.
The single is taken from the Manics’ forthcoming best of album, National Treasures, which features 37 of the bands previous single releases from a career spanning the past 21 years. The video includes wonderful footage of the band from the early 1990s right up to the present day.
This video pretty much sums up the reasons that make The Manics such a special band; combining boisterous rock and roll with often flagrant pretension and left-wing politics.
The band will perform all 38 singles at a special one off not to be missed show at London’s O2 Arena on December 17. It seems this will be their last activity for at least two years too.
