Band announce box set, featuring album on vinyl for the first time since original release, along with B-sides, alternative mixes and live versions

Rounding off an excellent year for the Manics following the release of their sterling Futurology album, the band will be complementing their now sold-out shows playing The Holy Bible in full by putting out a box set edition of the album to mark its 20th anniversary. Out on December 8, it will contain the album on vinyl for the first time since its original release, on August 29 1994, alongside four CDs, containing remastered editions of the album, both the UK and US mixes, a collection of B-sides and live versions, a recording of one of their final shows with Richey Edwards, from December 1994 at the Astoria in London, and their recent Radio 4 Mastertapes session, performing four tracks from the album in September.
