Manic Street Preachers - Wire Casts Doubt On Future Of Manic Street Preachers

Manic Street Preachers rocker Nicky Wire has cast doubt on the future of the band, revealing its latest album was a "wave goodbye".
The Welsh group has announced it will be releasing a greatest hits package in October (11) and performing all 38 of its singles released since 1991 at a special, one-off show in London at Christmas (11).
Now bassist Wire has fuelled speculation about the band's uncertain future by confirming it is to go on hiatus for at least two or three years.
Asked about their recent album Postcards from a Young Man, he tells Nme magazine, "It's genuinely, for the three of us, one of our favourite records. There's just something, there's a sense of us giving it all we've got, and I think we've got to wave our goodbye a bit.
"I think this greatest hits is completing the end of the second great cycle of Manic Street Preachers. Hopefully there'll be a third, but we've got a big job to take on to do that."
And referring to their planned Christmas show, he adds, "It's going to be an immense project, production-wise - screens, videos, you name it, you know, it'll be a completely unique thing. And we'll never do it again... it's really, kind of, finishing up."
