Manic Street Preachers will release a 20th anniversary collector’s edition of their fifth album This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours on December 7 2018.

The release will contain unheard demos and live rehearsal recordings as well as remixes by the likes of Massive Attack, David Holmes and Mogwai.

They will also play the album in full on a UK tour in May 2019. The dates are listed below.

Our Patrick Clarke called the album “the most coherent political statement the Manics made, to the largest audience they would ever reach.” Read our retrospective piece here.
