The Welsh rock band, Manic Street Preachers return with their brand new studio album "Resistance Is Futile." It is the band's 13th release and also features the longest gap (4 years) between albums. The new release features a dozen tracks that are filled with melodic, rock-based songs of empowerment, beginning with "People Give In" as the music simply soars during the chorus. The album continues with the high-energy rocker "International Blue" and the explosiveness of "Distant Colours" during the song's chorus. Manic Street Preachers work with The Anchoress on the love story, duet of "Dylan & Caitlin." The band's confidence and swagger comes shinning through on the modern alt-rock of "Liverpool Revisited" and the more intense delivery of "Sequels Of Forgotten Wars." They wrap up their new album with raw, punk-like energy of "Broken Algorithms" and the descriptive lyrics of "The Left Behind."
