Sean Moore has since "disowned" the newspaper
Sean Moore, drummer of Manic Street Preachers, was called upon to respond to the band’s new album being advertised in the Daily Mail this afternoon.
The original tweet read: “Surprised to see the Manic Street Preachers advertise in the Mail, probably unaware but surely you can’t tolerate this?”, to which Moore responded: “Hope not”.
The Manics drummer then went on to tweet: “Completely disowned whoever this is please not in our name” in response to the album advert.

Meanwhile, Manic Street Preachers have announced details of their upcoming 13th album after teasing that they may never make another album.
‘Resistance Is Futile’ has been described as “widescreen melancholia”. The follow-up to the acclaimed companion albums of the acoustic-led ‘Rewind The Film‘ and the eclectic ‘Futurology‘, it will be released via Columbia/Sony on April 6, 2018 – and can be pre-ordered here.
