New Manics biography

Ahead of the release of their singles collection album National Treasures on 31st October, Manic Street Preachers have unveiled a new biography, whereby each of the 38 singles on the album have been individually narrated by a collection journalists, public figures and personalities.

These figures include Phill Jupitus, Michael Sheen, Caitlin Moran, 6Music DJs Stuart Maconie and Steve Lamacq, Ed Simons of The Chemical Brothers, DJ and Producer Erol Alkan, and MD of Columbia Records; Mike Smith, amongst many more.

The biography shares stories behind the singles and some of the experiences of those who've supported the band through their decade spanning music career. The full biography is available on the official Manic Street Preachers website here:

The band have also made their 1992 single 'Love's Sweet Exile' available for free download from Amazon. Featured as the 3rd track the National Treasures album, 'Love's Sweet Exile' is originally taken from the Manics debut album Generation Terrorists which was released back in 1992.

To celebrate the release of National Treasures the band will play a unique, once in a lifetime Christmas party at the O2 Arena in London. The band promise "Glitter, glamour, special guests and a ticker-tape celebration. A never to be repeated one-off visual experience encompassing 21 years of MSP with 38 songs – from 1990's 'Motown Junk' to (but not in order!) 2011's 'This Is The Day'. There will be an interval in order to top up on refreshments and like all the best parties, you'll talk about it for years to come and your friends will wish they'd been there."
