The Manic Street Preachers documentary Culture, Alienation, Boredom and Despair will get a full-length screening for the first time in May.

The film, which was made by filmmaker Kieran Evans and longtime Manics collaborator Robin Turner, was originally planned as a 20-minute DVD extra to go with last year's 'Generation Terrorists' reissue box set. However, a full 76-minute version of it featuring archive film, TV clips, artwork and band photos from their personal archives will show for the first time at the Hackney Picture House in London next month (May 2) as part of a new monthly series organised by Heavenly Films. Details of a nationwide release are to follow.

Manic Street Preachers recently revealed that they are working on a new song called 'Four Lonely Roads' with folk singer Cate Le Bon. The band posted the latest update from their recording studio, where they are holed up working on their next studio album, last month (March 28).

The band are also set for a headline slot at this year's Festival No 6 in September. The band will perform at the Portmeirion event, which takes place between September 13–15, joining James Blake, Everything Everything, I Am Kloot, AlunaGeorge, Laura Mvula, Dutch Uncles, Jagwar Ma, Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs, Clinic and Mount Kimbie on the line-up.
