Welsh rock trio Manic Street Preachers have announced the release of their 13th studio album titled 'Resistance Is Futile'.
The follow-up to 2014's acclaimed LP Futurology, was recorded at the band’s new recording studios in Newport, and will be released on 6th April 2018 via Columbia/Sony.
A statement by the band reads: "The main themes of 'Resistance is Futile' are memory and loss; forgotten history; confused reality and art as a hiding place and inspiration.
"It's obsessively melodic - in many ways referencing both the naive energy of 'Generation Terrorists' and the orchestral sweep of 'Everything Must Go'. After delay and difficulties getting started, the record has come together really quickly over the last few months through a surge of creativity and some old school hard work."
