Manic Street Preachers unveil a very special Live digital EP
Manic Street Preachers release their new single 'Some Kind of Nothingness' on December 6th via Columbia Records. Featuring the unmistakable voice of Ian McCulloch, it will be the second single to be taken from their tenth studio album Postcards From A Young Man.
In addition and to round off a remarkable year, a very special live digital EP will be available from December 5th. The EP features tracks from the band’s recent UK tour and includes classics from their huge catalogue such as ‘Yes’ and ‘Sleepflower’ alongside versions of the new single.
The track listing is as follows:
‘Some Kind Of Nothingness’ / Live From ‘Later’
‘Some Kind Of Nothingness’ / Album version
‘Masses Against The Classes’ / Live from Newport Centre
‘Sleepflower’ / Live from Manchester Apollo
‘Yes’ / Live from Manchester Apollo
The band have also made a previously-unheard live version of 'Roses In The Hospital' (from Manchester Apollo) available now to stream at the following Soundcloud link:
Postcards From A Young Man was released in September to enormous acclaim and debuted at No. 3 in the UK charts. Since its release the band has toured extensively throughout the UK; they played shows in Australia earlier this month and are now in touring in Japan. Due to circumstances beyond the band’s control their two sold out nights scheduled for London’s Brixton Academy October 28th and 28th had to be postponed. Happily these shows are now confirmed for January 21st and 22nd. All tickets for the original shows are valid.
On Thursday (December 2nd) the band will be performing an exclusive show for Radio 2 at Blackwood Miners Institute in Wales.
