Manic Street Preachers have confirmed they will re-issue their 1998 album 'This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours'.
The cargo-pant clad record just celebrated its 20th birthday, with hits such as 'If You Tolerate This...' remaining evergreen facets of the Welsh group's catalogue.
Speaking to the NME, Nicky Wire revealed that the three-piece intend to re-issue the album, complete with a few bonuses.
"James (Dean Bradfield) has remastered it, I found all the demos," he said. "They’re amazing – all on cassettes, recorded in someone’s front room. We’ve put (B-side) ‘Prologue To History’ on the album now and kicked off ‘Nobody Loved You’. We’ve moved that onto disc two with a great demo that we’ve found."
"It’s packed full of really interesting and intimate stuff, as well as us in the studio and off the leash on certain songs like ‘Tsunami’ that are much more raw. There are some amazing remixes too – by people like Mogwai, Massive Attack and Cornelius. It was a great period where people would take your work and transform it into something really special."
Nicky Wire admits that Manic Street Preachers could go back out on the road to support the re-release. "We might do one next year," he said. We’re looking into it now. We might do some really nice old-school dates of our favourite venues – nothing too gigantic. I just finished the artwork off and that’s looking really nice."
Can't wait for that? Nicky Wire's new exhibition Paintings and Polaroids is currently running at Tenby Museum And Art Gallery in Wales - it closes on October 21st.]
