Manic Street Preachers has just released a panoramic video for their brand new song titled “International Blue”. The distinctive style of the direction of the video is full of curiosity. The stunning video features eye-filling backgrounds, nature, memorable buildings with extraordinary design and spectacular locations as center of attraction. As usual, professionally produced with a lot of creativity behind the song, incredible male vocals blended with one in kind of instrumentation.
Manic Street Preachers
A Welsh rock band, created in 1986 in Blackwood, Caerphilly by the band name Manic Street Preachers and commonly referred to as the Manics; is made up of James Dean Bradfield (lead vocals, lead guitar), Nicky Wire (bass guitar, lyrics) and Sean Moore (drums, percussion, soundscapes). After the release of their debut single, “Suicide Alley”, the band took it to the next level by welcoming a new member by the name Richey Edwards to team up with the band as co-lyricist and rhythm guitarist. The band’s early albums were in a punk vein, eventually expanded to a greater alternative rock sound, whilst retaining a leftist politicisation. Their early blend of androgynous glam imagery and lyrics about “culture, alienation, boredom and despair” has gained them a loyal following and cult status.
With their first album, Generation Terrorists, the Manic Street Preachers declared it would be the “greatest rock album ever”, as well as hoping to sell “sixteen million copies” around the world, after which they would break up. Despite the album’s lack of success, the band continued with their career. The group became a trio when Richey Edwards disappeared in February 1995. The band moved on to gain critical and commercial success in spite of his absence.
For the duration of their music career, the Manics have featured in many festivals including Glastonbury, T in the Park, V Festival and Reading, won eleven NME Awards, eight Q Awards and four BRIT Awards. They have been nominated for the Mercury Prize in 1996 and 1999, and have had one nomination for the MTV Europe Music Awards. The band has reached number 1 in the UK charts three times: in 1998, with the album This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours and the single “If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next”, and again in 2000 with the single “The Masses Against the Classes”. They have sold more than ten million albums globally.
