It's the first album to be recorded at the band's new Door to the River Studio in Newport.

Say the band - "The main themes of 'Resistance Is Futile' are memory and loss - forgotten history - confused reality and art as a hiding place and inspiration. Musically the album is obsessively melodic and in many ways references the naive energy of 'Generation Terrorists' and the orchestral sweep of 'Everything Must Go'. After delay and difficulties, the record has come together really quickly over the last few months, there has been a surge of creativity and old school hard work."

They didn't keep it that quiet.... JDB said at their summer shows they'd see us again in April which is not indecipherable cos for new album and tour in the spring.

Wire, who is the Manics' chief lyricist, said the band might have "overdone it" with their last two albums, Rewind The Film and Futurology.
"It sapped us of our creative juices," he said, noting that it had been more than three years since Futurology - the longest gap the band ever had between releases.

"It's really frightening actually because I just don't know [if we'll have another record]," he said.

"It's hard to see one coming out at the moment."
Bastard!

True but to release the gig details and album in a big bang without it being found on some Amazon site or similar is an accomplishment these days

I am ridiculously excited. I'm nearly 54 ffs. I shouldn't be this excited about a record.

The Crow 17-11-2017 08:16

lol yea being a Trekkie & a huge fan of TNG, like many I didn't see this one coming at all. Arena's is quite a feat for a new LP tour, I'll see them on the 2nd Leg unless of course the LP is really good.

What about the Mini Disc format? :)

Hey I am 58 relic and still highly excitable.

I did, I didnt bother coming to the forums though after reading that though. I legit thought it might be all over.

Dancing Kirby 17-11-2017 08:17

That recent interview was some of Nicky’s finer trolling.

I like the artwork, the title and the formats. It’s so much better when there’s no music to judge.

Still laughing at cassette. Are they catering for my age group?
