The Welsh rock band is also scheduled to release its 13th album on April 13. Resistance Is Futile will serve as a follow up to the band's 2014 compilation Futurology.
James Dean Bradfield's Interview
Last year, James Dean Bradfield, Manic Street Preachers frontman, opened up about Resistance Is Futile.
"Nicky Wire, [bassist and lyricist] has given me some amazing lyrics that absolutely sum up the political situation that we've been talking about, and I've fallen back in love with the middle 8. I'm writing a lot of middle 8s. I would like to kick against the oblique, delineated, opaque groove that everybody is into. I'd like to rock again," said Bradfield.
