New Manics album to be their last?

Nothing official yet but State has received a postcard from the Manic Street Preachers (nice touch by the way) with the following message – “Hello everyone. We’ve made some music, written some words – our 10th album is being born. So ‘hey ho let’s go’ – time to tour – one last shot at mass communication”. Read into that what you will. Postcards From A Young Man is released in September.

  • According to an interview on 6 Music, it will be their last attempt at a “pop” album.

  • Hence the ‘mass communication’ line….

  • Cormac

    Exactly. It’s their last attempt at doing an album for the masses, and then they will make albums for themselves. They aren’t going away.
