Manic Street Preachers Deny Split

MANIC STREET PREACHERS have denied their various solo projects signal the end of the Welsh rockers, insisting they are currently working on a new album together. Bassist NICKY WIRE and guitarist JAMES DEAN BRADFIELD have each taken time out to work on solo albums before they produce a follow-up to 2004's LIFEBLOOD. Wire says, "I've just done a really crappy punky solo album. James has done a solo album and the Manics are writing as well, so lots of stuff going on. "I'm going to do some gigs and they'll be a mix of baroque comedy and useless guitaring."
