Manic Street Preachers: 30 years, 13 albums, 10 million in record sales
Meeting at school in South Wales, the group started off as a four-piece including singer James Dean Bradfield, drummer Sean Moore, guitarist Nicky Wire and Richey Edwards. Colloquially known as 'The Manics', the band boldly declared that their debut record Generation Terrorists would be the greatest rock album of all time. Made up of 18 tracks, the LP explored topics from politics to capitalism and personal struggles, winning both critical and commercial success. Gold Against the Soul and The Holy Bible found a similar level of popularity, but Edwards disappeared following the latter's release, putting the band's future in doubt. He was never found, and was declared legally dead in 2008.
After the remaining members elected to persevere together, they brought out Everything Must Go in 1996, which included the monster hit single "A Design For Life". Fifth album This is My Truth Tell Me Yours was a defining moment for the remaining trio with the record shortlisted for the Mercury Prize and winning multiple awards, along with a headline spot at Glastonbury Festival in 1999.
Their anthemic rock has since won them plenty of fans, and consistently high quality records like Send Away the Tigers and Postcards from a Young Man impressed their growing audience. In 2014, they achieved another number two spot in the UK album charts with Futurology and x album Resistence is Futile is set for release in April 2018 with a UK tour to follow.
