Manic Street Preachers are already plotting their new album - less than a month after their latest LP hit the shelves.
Frontman James Dean Bradfield hinted the group plan to lighten the mood for their next offering due to the emotional strain they went through making Journal for Plague Lovers.
It featured lyrics left by bandmate Richey Edwards, who was declared legally dead in November 2008 following his disappearance in 1995.
Speaking of new material, Bradfield said: "We're going to try to create an experience that brings a bit more joy. I think we've always reacted against ourselves. When we made This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours, it was our biggest-selling record in the world, and then we made a clattery experimental punk album in Know Your Enemy."
