Title: Manics Pay Homage To Missing Edwards
Publication: Ireland On-Line
Date: Wednesday 4th August 2004


Welsh rockers The Manic Street Preachers have written an emotional tribute to their missing guitarist Richey Edwards on their new album Life Blood.

The song Cardiff Afterlife is a "delayed reaction" to the mysterious disappearance of their founding member nine years ago and deals with their concern about his well-being, following Edward's notorious alcoholism, anorexia and self-harming.

Bassist Nicky Wire explains: "It's a delayed reaction. It just gushed out. It's tender but truthful, and I'm proud of that."

The eagerly-awaited album is due out in October.
