Manic Street Preachers | Resistance Is Futile
According to Kate Seldman: “’What is the future of the future?’ asks James Dean Bradfield on the Manic Street Preachers’ latest release, Resistance Is Futile. In the 32 years that the Welsh three-piece have been together, their idiosyncratic blend of bombastic stadium rock and sharp-eyed cultural commentary has made them one of Britain’s most beloved bands. But is there still a place for the Manics in this era of Snapchat and Brexit? Resistance Is Futile, the band’s thirteenth studio album, finds them treading familiar ground. That’s not to say they’re phoning it in: they’re simply doing what they do best.
They may be questioning their future, but the Manic Street Preachers don’t sound like they’re ready to give up just yet.”
