I know it's just AI nonsense but just reading "Nicky Wire's biting lyrics about the traps of modern technology and social media" was enough to send chills down my spine.

I was listening to 'Send Away The Tigers' the other day and I'd love for the new record to have songs similar to 'Your Love Alone Is Not Enough' and 'I'm Just A Patsy'. I also get that recreating or emulating that sound may not come off too well, it's just that I love that version, particularly of the Manics later era.

Just so happy to have some
News and then the gig date released today. Still the only band to make me feel this happy.

OH GOD PLEASE NO! We've already had PFAYM, some of RTF, and RIF sounding EXACTLY like that. Booooring Manics-by-numbers-one-last-shot-at-mass-communication crap. I'd rather be surprised like I was surprised by KYE, LB, or the part of RTF that's not festive chart-topping-wannabe bullshit.

Yet Complicated Illusions is still fantastic and I'd have been happier if that had been the lead single.
I'm not predicting anything about whatever they've done. Just happy new stuff coming.
At least they'll have put some thought into than just knocking out songs to fill a quota.
I'm incredibly interested in whatever they've recorded. It'll sound like what it does.
Could have everything we want, gives us nothing or echo previous songs. Or all of it.
Probably get the book version of it than HMV first day.
Didn't feel the need to mention but may as well point out I'm down for what the band do next.
You know I said not predicting anything? Typing this out I thought of wanting more guitar solos.
Sobered by thought next album could be their last... I reckon they've got a handful more optimism!
New Manics album 15. I'd happily take a double with thoughtless on fumes weaker material! But whatever we get or sounds like? Not on me at the moment.
And not negating anyone who thinks they should quit. I think they don't have to, of course.

I can see this being a straight guitar album.

On the one hand, I can see it being a Resistance is Futile type of collection of songs (but hopefully much much better).

On the other, I can see it being a melancholic Wire album after his family stuff.

Another Instagram picture I can't share. It's of Nicky's white Aerodyne bass.
Not a Gear4Music edition. Quite pricey. Nicky's caught the high end bug from James!
And taunting us with "New songs" text.

I’m so excited about what’s next. 25 years being a fan. Still same feeling.

Saw a fellow classic rock act, Sum 41 (now Aged 43), are hanging up their long straps after this next tour.

I'm so very grateful that one thing that links me directly to my school days is still going. In a world where so much has moved on.

Was TUVL released in Japan?
Plus again, where's the Channel 4 documentary filming crew when you need it?
At least Suede can be called Suede there.
Obviously they've played Japan before. Still would have made a good little film.
Well have fun whoever reads this that can make it to these shows
