Before the great Prague concert, Manic Street Preachers had several interviews in the dingy Lucerne Prague basement. Singer James Dean Bradfield recalled the crisis that the band underwent before recording two new albums.
"We had an annual concert in London and played thirty-one singles during one night, and that was an important experience for us, and we realised there was a chance to continue the band even forty-five," the singer James Dean Bradfield events that preceded the release of the latest Rewind the Film and the forthcoming Futurology.
"When confronted with your professional history, you will find that some things have changed to some extent. You have the opportunity to either wrap it up or fall apart or say it is worthwhile to go on," Bradfield describes a certain crisis, in the case of Manic Street Preachers, a very well received record of nostalgia has been criticised.
"We realised we were no longer a band in the UK to hit the top of the charts. When young groups see us playing at the festival, we know they say, Jesus, they're the heirs!" says Bradfield, with what feelings his band had to deal with. It does not mean that she has given up ambition - just today has the so-called "more realistic expectations".
And there is a different approach to work. "We picked up the thing we wanted to write about before, and they put a record around it, and we're waiting for what's coming," says Bradfield. The fact that the experimenting novelist of the Futurology band recorded in Berlin does not take it as a symbol but rather a coincidence of coincidences. What came out of it will be clear on July 7, when the album comes out.
