New CD and vinyl package will come with rare live recordings and previously unseen photographs

Manic Street Preachers have announced details of a special 20th anniversary edition of their seminal album ‘The Holy Bible’.

The band will reissue the album, which was originally released in 1994, on December 8, in both CD and vinyl editions. It will be the first time ‘The Holy Bible’ has been made available on vinyl since its original release. Each release will also come with extras including BBC recordings of their 1994 live shows at the London Astoria, a book of rare and unseen photographs, and sleeve notes written by the band themselves.

Also included is the US mixed version of the record and a CD of B-sides and live recordings including a previously unreleased version of the track ‘Revol’. There is also audio footage of the band’s recent session at Maida Vale, recorded for Radio 4’s Mastertapes series in September 2014.
