Manic Street Preachers announce 10th anniversary reissue of ‘Send Away The Tigers’

'This album gave us a new lease of life'

Manic Street Preachers have announced a special reissue of ‘Send Away The Tigers’ to mark its tenth anniversary. See the trailer, tracklist and artwork below.

The band’s eighth album, containing the hit single ‘Your Love Alone Is Not Enough’, was released in 2007 and saw the band return to critical and commercial success after predecessors ‘Lifeblood’ and ‘Know Your Enemy’ were widely seen as failures. Now, the band will be celebrating the album with a deluxe reissue on CD, vinyl and DVD featuring remastered tracks, demos, b-sides, and their live performances from Glastonbury that year.

“‘Send Away The Tigers was a very important record for us,” said the band in a statement. “It gave us a new lease of life and helped us to rediscover our love of the band.”

Reviewing the album in 2007, NME wrote: “Manic Street Preachers really have no business sounding as good as this. If it doesn’t quite scale the dizzy heights of ‘The Holy Bible’ or ‘Everything Must Go’, it certainly comes close and is, in many ways, the quintessential Manics album – the cathartic regeneration that the band really needed in order to become relevant again.

“It’s the triumphant comeback of the year. And it’s a pleasure to be able to review it without having to fear for our lives.”

The reissue will be released on 12 May and is available for pre-order here.

A statement reads: “The bookset features the original album remastered by James Dean Bradfield, unheard demos, a bonus disc of b-sides and rare tracks plus a DVD of their full 2007 Glastonbury set, promo videos and rare/never-before-seen footage from rehearsals. Nicky Wire has also contributed handwritten lyrics and imagery from his personal archive”.”
