The Manics' 'Plague' Spreads...
Manic Street Preachers release an alternative version of their incendiary and beautiful No.3 album Journal For Plague Lovers later this month.
Each track from the band's ninth studio album Journal For Plague Lovers has been remixed and will be released as a digital EP on June 15th. The band hand-picked an impressive selection of remixers:
"It's been a pretty overwhelming response to be honest. We chose people for each track hoping they would bring us back something unique, that they'd find something we maybe hadn't in the track. Without fail, they've done that. Heartfelt thanks from us to everyone involved." - Nicky Wire
Saint Etienne - Jackie Collins Existential Question Time
British Sea Power - Me And Stephen Hawking
Patrick Wolf - This Joke Sport Severed
Optimo (Espacio) - Journal For Plague Lovers
The Pariahs - She Bathed Herself In A Bath Of Bleach
Adem - Facing Page Top Left
New Young Pony Club - Marlon JD
The Horrors - Doors Closing Slowly
Errors - All Is Vanity
Four Tet - Pretension/Repulsion
Fuck Buttons - Virginia State Epileptic Colony
Underworld - William's Last Words
Also anyone who bought the double deluxe edition of Plague but was mystified to find Bag Lady missing can now download it free - alongside the Jonathan Krisp remix - from the band's website here.
