The biography shares stories behind the singles and some of the experiences of those who've supported the band through their decade spanning music career. The full biography is available on the official Manic Street Preachers website here:

The band have also made their 1992 single 'Love's Sweet Exile' available for free download from Amazon.

To celebrate the release of 'National Treasures' the band will play a unique, once in a lifetime Christmas party at the O2 Arena in London. The band promise "Glitter, glamour, special guests and a ticker-tape celebration. A never to be repeated one-off visual experience encompassing 21 years of MSP with 38 songs ' from 1990's 'Motown Junk' to (but not in order!) 2011's 'This Is The Day'. There will be an interval in order to top up on refreshments and like all the best parties, you'll talk about it for years to come and your friends will wish they'd been there."
