Manic Street Preachers Release Seventh Album

Published: 2004-10-04
Britain's Manic Street Preachers are preparing to release their seventh studio-album. The release date is set for November 1st, with 'Lifeblood' initially being available in Canada through import order only. The 12-track album has been anxiously awaited by MSP fans for quite some time, and they will soon be able to get their hands on the first sample of 'Lifeblood'.

On October 18th, the first single from 'Lifeblood' will be released to the world. The track is called 'The Love of Richard Nixon', and can be previewed at the band's site at

The Manics' last album was 2001's 'Know Your Enemy', which wasn't too warmly received by fans or critics. However, the band is looking to regain their place at the top of the Brit-band heap with 'Lifeblood'.

The band's biggest notoriety came when their primary songwriter famously disappeared - Manic Street Preachers were mentioned in the headlines of many a newspaper during 1994/95. With most of the tracks written by Richey James, the missing Manic, their album 'The Holy Bible' didn't suffer at all from the media attention. The band's next album, 'Everything Must Go' (released 1996) solidified Manic Street Preachers as international music stars.

The track-listing of 'Lifeblood':

'The Love of Richard Nixon'
'Empty Souls'
'A Song for Departure'
'I Live To Fall Asleep'
'To Rebel Ghosts'
'Solitude Sometimes Is'
'Cardiff Afterlife'
