Manic Street Preachers have announced the release date for their 11th studio album. Rewind The Film will be released on September 16. The band said in a statement: "[If] this record has a relation in the Manics back catalogue, it’s probably the sedate coming of age that was This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours."
The video to the album's title track is already out, and it features English guitarist, and singer-songwriter Richard Hawley. "I am so chuffed to have been asked to sing with the mighty Manics," said Hawley. "Can't tell you what it means to me. The whole experience is something I'll treasure forever – I love the Manics and what they stand for and to be a tiny part of that means the world to me."
The band has also announced a tour of the U.K. and Ireland in support of the new release. The six-date tour kicks of on September 13 in Newport, and visits Dublin, Bristol, London, and Manchester before finishing up in Glasgow on September 29.
