Video of the Moment #2841: Manic Street Preachers

In mid-April, Manic Street Preachers released their first album in 4 years, since 2014’s ‘Futurology’. ‘Resistance is Futile’, the thirteenth LP from the Welsh legends, is available now, and it stars ‘International Blue’ and ‘Liverpool Revisited’, the latter a paean to the loved ones of those lost at Hillsborough, plus other great tracks. ‘Hold Me Like a Heaven’ from the LP is an beautifully anthemic number and has a new video that shows the stark contrast between the outdoors and the digital age. Watch it below. For all of our past coverage on Manic Street Preachers, go here.

 

(Charity!) Video of the Moment #2087: Manic Street Preachers

The Welsh enjoy their sport. They really do. So it totally makes sense that legendary Welsh band Manic Street Preachers would get involved in some way with the Welsh footy squad for their campaign in EURO 2016.

They’ve written and recorded ‘Together Stronger (C’Mon Wales)’, the official Welsh EURO 2016 song, to support their countrymen’s bid in the tourney. Its accompanying video stars Wales National Team Manager Chris Coleman and members of the Wales squad at training. Even better, all profits from the sale of the song will go to Welsh health charities the Princes Gate Trust and Tenovus Cancer Care. The song goes on sale this coming Friday, the 20th of May, the same day as Manic Street Preachers’ own 20th anniversary e-issue of their hugely successful fourth album ‘Everything Must Go’. ‘Everything Must Go 20’ will be available in box set, double CD and digital formats. Past coverage of Manic Street Preachers on TGTF can be found through here.

Wherever you will be hanging your hat this weekend, whether you’re joining the sheep at Worthy Farm or you’ve got your feet up in front of the telly, us here at TGTF will have you covered when it comes to Glastonbury 2014. The dedicated people they are, the folks at the BBC will be working all hours during the festival and feeding us live coverage as it becomes available. What does this mean for you? We’ll be passing along all the best bits to you, our faithful readers.

One of the best things about an event as massive as Glastonbury is that talented acts of today can stand side by side by the legendary ones of yore. Or in the case of the Manic Street Preachers, a band that has stood the test of time can wow their original fans as well as the new generation of music lovers. Yesterday, we posted this solo acoustic version of newer Manics song ‘Walk Me to the Bridge’ performed by frontman James Dean Bradfield. Now we’ve got an oldie but a goodie from the Manics back catalogue, the brilliant ‘Motorcycle Emptiness’. Watch it below.

James Dean Bradfield, lead singer of legendary Welsh alt-rock band Manic Street Preachers, stopped into the BBC Music Tepee Friday at Glasto 2014 in some smart wellies and his acoustic guitar. What for, you ask? To play an stripped back version of the Manics’ new song ‘Walk Me to the Bridge’, which features on the band’s upcoming album ‘Futurology’, out on the 7th of July. (You can hear the studio version of the song in the promo in this previous Video of the Moment feature.)

In the Manic Street Preachers‘ new and suspenseful video for ‘Walk Me to the Bridge’, we follow a German woman running frantically around town in a race against time. Or is it? Watch the video for the power pop anthem below. ‘Futurology’, their next album, is scheduled for a release date of the 7th of July on Columbia.
