The Manic's 'The Holy Bible' Turns 10

Published: 2004-12-10
They recently released their seventh studio album, but fans of British trio Manic Street Preachers will soon be able to revisit the band's past too. The band's classic 1994 album 'The Holy Bible' is set to be expanded and reissued on February 8th. The occasion for this revisit of MSP music past is to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the album's release.

Now you may say to yourself, February is in 2005, and that would be the 11th year of 'The Holy Bible's existence, but the reissue is actually hitting British shores this month (which is still 2004, you see). North Americans though, are being forced to wait a bit longer (unless it's purchased as an import that is). The revamped package of 'The Holy Bible' is set to include three discs: a re-mastered version of the original audio, the US mix of the album, and a DVD.

In addition to the original audio, there are also demo and live tracks included on the CDs. The 80-minute DVD is set to include television clips, videos, live performances, and an interview with the band members. 'The Holy Bible' was the Manic Street Preachers last album as a quartet, as after its creation, guitarist/songwriter Richey Edwards mysteriously disappeared.
