+new manic street preachers album+

029yes

Well, well. What have we here?

Over at the official Manics site, the gentlemen of our favorite Welsh band have posted a brief note explaining that they are working on a new album, tentatively slated for release next April or May. Most intriguing to me is that they are using lyrics written by Richey before he disappeared, saying that it finally feels like the right time to record these songs. Working titles are “Journal for Plague Lovers” and “I Know I Believe in Nothing but It Is My Nothing,” and the songs are being recorded in a stripped down way with producer Steve Albini. The note also states that the songs feel like a cross between The Holy Bible and the acoustic sounds of “Small Black Flowers.”

I am officially excited.

(Also, I must give credit to the fantastic Reubenchives over at lj for the banner used in this post. If you’re a Manics fan, you must check out her work.)
