Manic Street Preachers release a new double A-side single through Epic Records on May 30 entitled 'Faster’ backed with ’PCP'.
The Manics headline the forthcoming Carnival Against The Nazis in Brockwell Park on May 28 as well as topping the bill on the NME Stage at Glastonbury Festival on June 24.
The band have almost ﬁnished work on the follow-up to last year’s 'Gold Against The Soul' album. The new material is said to mark a change of direction from the ’anthemic’ sound of the previous album.
The band have just returned from Thailand where they played two sell-out 3000-seat shows in Bangkok. At the first gig, the venue’s ceiling started to collapse and surveyors were called in to check the damage. The second show went ahead after the building was declared safe.
