Manic Street Preachers return with their 14th studio album ‘The Ultra Vivid Lament’ on 3rd September 2021 released on Columbia/Sony and have announced a tour for this autumn.  ‘Orwellian’ - the first track to be released (today - 14th May) - is classic Manic Street Preachers, dissecting the misuse of words against cascading, glacial melody.

Following Manic Street Preachers longest enforced break from playing live, the group will take the album on a 14 date cross-country tour including Edinburgh's Usher Hall.
