35 years in and still going strong, the Manics‘ 14th LP The Ultra Vivid Lament recently became their second UK number one album (following 1998’s This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours) and the band are out on tour around the UK playing to packed out halls up and down the country. Lorna Cort was there, camera in hand, to capture the action on the Bournemouth leg of the tour, where they were supported by Hull post-punk six-piece Low Hummer.
Manic Street Preachers play two more UK shows in 2021:
1 December – Llandudno, Venue Cymru
