Manic Street Preachers are giving away a free track to promote upcoming new album ‘Send Away the Tigers‘. The song, ‘Underdogs’, will be released as a free download from 19 March, ahead of the release of the long player on 7 May.
The band’s Nicky Wire says of the track: “[It’s] all out punk metal – Alice Cooper – Stooges guitar outro. Could have been on ‘Generation Terrorists’. A celebration of the unique, a post ‘Everything Must Go’ address to the fans ten years after the first time we did it. In a Britain dominated by generic, one diametrical multi branding, let us embrace the difference – the downtrodden – the losers and the opposition. Let us fall in love with individuality again.”
