Manic Street Preachers - Manic Street Preachers to release new album in 2014

Manic Street Preachers are planning to release their 11th studio album in early 2014.

James Dean Bradfield, the group's lead vocalist and guitarist, insists the 'Design For Life' hitmakers' next record is ''much better'' than their 2004 album 'Lifeblood', which the rocker says was a ''mess up'' and ''disconnected''.

Speaking at the Classic Rock Roll of Honour at the Roundhouse at London's Camden Town last night (13.11.12), he told BANG Showbiz: ''We are thinking about releasing it early 2014.

''I'm trying to find a good word for the next record. I'm not going to say esoteric because no-one wants to hear that word, it's not even eclectic. But it's not the mess up of 'Lifeblood', which was disconnected and didn't have much life blood. Actually, it was quite blood-less! I think we've done something much better this time.''

The group - who are also made up of bassist Nicky Wire and drummer Sean Moore - have recently re-released their 18-track debut album 'Generation Terrorists', and James admits they may follow suit with some of their other back catalogue after receiving such a great response.

He added: ''It probably got better reviews around this time than it did the first time which is another good reason for re-releasing it I suppose.

''It's like rock archaeology, digging round our draws for ferry stubs and old ticket stubs and old demos and old lyric sheets. It was kinda fun really.''

James was joined at the ceremony - which was hosted by Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan - by a host of legendary musicians including ZZ Top, who took home the Living Legend Award, Nikki Sixx, Status Quo, Pink Floyd's Nick Mason and Lynyrd Skynyrd, who won the Comeback Award and celebrated by closing the event with a 30-minute greatest hits set.
