Manic Street Preachers' Nicky Wire: 'We're going to disappear for a long time' - video
Watch outspoken bassist reveal band's future plans backstage to NME
Speaking backstage at this weekend's V Festival he said the band are set to embark on a long break after their second 'Best Of' collection is released in October. Watch footage of Wire revealing their future plans via the video above.
It's the end of an era, not the end of the band but we're going to disappear for quite a long time.
Wire confirmed that the band will continue working on their new album '70 Songs Of Hatred And Failure' but it will be sometime before they resurface.
Ideally we have to push ourselves to do something that we haven't done before. But I do feel it is going to be at least two or three years before we come back after this greatest hits collection.
