Title: Manics Do Their Best
Publication: NME.com
Date: Wednesday 28th February 2001


The band's follow-up to 'Know Your Enemy' is likely to be a selection of their best moments...

Manic Street Preachers frontman James Dean Bradfield has revealed that the band are likely to follow forthcoming album ‘Know Your Enemy’ with a ‘Greatest Hits’ record and then possibly one last album, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

Speaking ahead of his band’s trip to Cuba, Bradfield said: “We’ll always have something to talk about but you do worry about what you have to say next time. I’m not saying we’ve reverted to some kind of punk ethos but a lot of people are saying that about some of the tracks on the album. You do worry about how people perceive you and there is a natural lifespan for band like us – it isn’t forever. We’ll probably have to do a ‘Greatest Hits’ after this.”

Indicating that the band have given thought to their long-term future he said: “I think we’ll do another album after the ‘Greatest Hits’ but then again you’ll never know… I think you’ve got to be conscious of when the best time is to split up because you might end up sullying a lot of the good work you’ve done.”

Bradfield also revealed that the Manics hope to play this summer’s Witnness Festival, held just outside of Dublin. A date for the festival has yet to be confirmed, though it is likely to fall during the first weekend of August. Last year Beck, Travis and David Gray were amongst the headliners. Stereophonics and Wheatus are also likely additions for this year.
