Are us Yanks going to get the shaft again?

I know as a US fan not to expect any live dates, but will I be able to even buy this on iTunes or will I have to d/l illegally?

I think they had Futurology in the US eventually, like months after the release, but RTF no. Well after further review RTF is on there now, but it definitely wasn't when first released. I need to hear it when it's released too! I can't be waiting for months over here!

As a Yank, I've always been able to import the albums from UK without any hassle or even any delay. The live shows are an issue.

Having been a fan for over 20 years, I've only been able to see them TWICE!

I had tix to see them locally for their This is My Truth tour, but they canceled that show when Nicky's mum passed (understandable). They didn't play here again until Journal (which I saw), then again for Holy Bible anniversary, which was my second and apparently final Manics show.

Saw them on those tours as well. Would love to hear the new single, but all I get is "not available in your country".

Try tunnelbear, the free version should be enough data to hear the single.

The download on iTunes or Google Play in Canada is $1.29.

They finally have some of the deluxe editions on Spotify US, but it took years! I went ahead and ordered a physical copy -- I think the last time I bought a CD was probably Futurology.

Same here man. Not on Apple Music yet, and can’t even get it on YouTube. Have to try to listen to it via third party pirates and shit. It’s more like “European Blue”.

I hope it’ll turn up there eventually.
