Manic Street Preachers announce new album 'Resistance Is Futile'

Following from their critical-acclaimed 2014 studio album 'Futurology', legendary Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers have now announced their plans for a new studio LP, set to arrive next year.

The new full-length 'Resistance Is Futile' will become their thirteenth studio album to date, and has been described by the band as "obsessively melodic", stating it "references both the naive energy of ‘Generation Terrorists’ and the orchestral sweep of ‘Everything Must Go'".

'Resistance Is Futile' is due out on the 6th April 2018 via Columbia/Sony, and you can check out the album's trailer in the player below.
