Manic Street Preachers have announced details of a 20th anniversary edition of their 1994 album The Holy Bible.

The band will re-release the record on CD and vinyl editions early next month. It’ll be the first time the LP will be available on vinyl since its original release.

The Holy Bible was the third studio album by the Welsh rockers. At the time the album was written, lyricist and guitarist Richey Edwards was struggling with severe depression. The album’s lyrics are considered by many to reflect his deteriorating mental state. The Holy Bible was the last of the band’s albums released before Edwards’ disappearance on 1 February 1995.

The 20th anniversary release includes the band’s BBC recordings of their 1994 live shows at the London Astoria, a book of rare photographs and sleeve notes written by each of the members.

It will also feature the American mix of the record and a CD of B-sides and live recordings including an unreleased version of the track ‘Revol’ and songs from their Glastonbury set. As well as the band’s recent session at Maida Vale, recorded for Radio 4’s Mastertapes series in September 2014.

In September, Manic Street Preachers announced that they are set to tour The Holy Bible, playing it live and in full for the first time in nearly two decades. The gigs are all to take place in December, the group will play Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on Saturday 13th.
