In anticipation of the release of the new Manic Street Preachers album ‘Resistance is Futile’ on 13 April 2018, the Manics have released a classic track entitled ‘Liverpool Revisited’, which is about the Hillsborough Justice Campaign efforts to get some legal accountability for the death of 96 supporters in the 1989 stadium crush in Sheffield.
The song was written on the day the Crown Prosecution Service announced charges were to be filed against six people, including the Hillsborough match commander David Duckenfield, former chief constable Sir Norman Bettison and four other people.
This track is what the Manics do best – urgent, angry poetry about the ordinary everyday people in life and the fight against injustice – ‘There is dignity and pride, there is poetry and life’:
Heartfelt, moving and poignant over the guitar-driven urgency we know and love from the iconic band. Visit the Manic’s website for album orders and tour news.
