Isn’t the choice of photo meant to signify the futility of resistance? The way the samurai kept fighting despite the world they inhabited having moved on?

I prefer artwork to just the norm at the moment which is a bog standard photo of the artist on the album

Woke up and thought it was a bit light for the morning. Oh it's 11? Might be why. Get up then. Get dressed. Morning cigarette hello Magpies. Oh two of you, that's good.
There you go, salutes to you both.
Had breakfast then went upstairs to switch on my Tablet. It's Friday so we might have something from Red Letter Media. "Let's see shall we" as they say.
Oh three notifications. OK.
Something about "Resistance Is Futile" the new Manic Street Preachers album?
What?? But I've already swallowed! Why didn't anyone tell me this so I could have prepared a spit take?
Did laugh at the bit when the Japanese model started screaming.
Even saved the link to post here thinking nobody else had.

Only saw the video once. Will watch again. No idea what the cover is meant to represent, but new Manics album! Won't preorder as I can't guarantee the money will be in there, but it'll be a first day sale!

I forget, does the official store take money upon orders being placed or dispatched? If it's the former, I can't consider myself a superfan.

'Send Away the Tigers' - dodgy title, dodgy album
'Journal for Plague Lovers' - dodgy title, A* album
'Resistance is Futile' - which will it be?

I'd imagine straight away if you Paypal'd it - if you used their system maybe later?

All those surprised by the cassette are a bit out of touch, plenty of big releases have had tapes in recent years, even places like Urban Outfitters have been selling them. I had a big rant in another thread about how they've been appropriated from the underground tape scene which never really died, but there we go. Frankly, I'm happy at the selling price - one of the things that made them popular with a lot of DIY labels was being so cheap, so when you get Kanye West tapes retailing at £15 it makes a mockery of the whole thing. I'm sure it'll all die off and go back to being underground in the next few years anyway. Meantime, a few thousand people will have a shelf of Manics, Slowdive and Aphex Twin tapes for nostalgia purposes.

Resistance is Futile feels like such an overdone, well-worn phrase by now that it really doesn't stand out as an album title. Strange choice. The cover's ok, feels a bit later-Manics-by-numbers really, but nothing especially bad. Some of the snippets in the video sound nice, a couple of them sound worryingly PFAYM-ish. The contrast between the dark, creepy video and sound design with those clips is (probably unintentionally) hilarious though. Fuck knows what they're going for with that.

Six months is an absurdly long time for an announcement, so I agree that the album might well not be finished. The way a lot of the clips aren't especially clear in the video suggests they might be demos or whatever. It's a very strange way to do it. I like short waits rather than long ones, but at least we know that something's coming. It's been a long time!

Seems it was previewed at the Q Awards, hiding in plain sight!
