For its tenth anniversary...
'Send Away The Tigers'

Manic Street Preachers are set to re-issue their album 'Send Away The Tigers' for its tenth anniversary.

Released in 2007, 'Send Away The Tigers' was an emphatic end to a somewhat confused time for the band.

Exiting a period of side projects and solo endeavours, Manic Street Preachers returned with plenty of melody, ambition, and bite.

'Send Away The Tigers' will be spruced up for its 10th anniversary, with James Dean Bradfield overseeing the audio scraping and polishing.

In addition to this, the package features unheard demos; a bonus disc of b-sides and rare tracks; a DVD of their full 2007 Glastonbury set; promo videos and rare/never seen before footage from rehearsals.

The accompanying booklet will also feature handwritten lyrics and imagery from Nicky Wire's personal archive. The band explain:

"'Send Away The Tigers' was a very important record for us, it gave us a new lease of life and helped us to rediscover our love of the band. This edition helps to tell the whole story. Through demos, home recordings and hand-written lyrics you find intimate details of a band about to reinvent themselves."

'Send Away The Tigers' will be available from May 12th on double cd + DVD bookset, double vinyl (with download codes) and digitally.
