    To be honest, I'm not really expecting any replies. I'm just wondering if I actually find Manic Street Preachers and/or Stereophonics fans? I don't really listen to rock music or metal, but I don't mind alternative rock as such. Nobody at my school has really heard of Manic Street Preachers, which is a shame because they're Welsh (like me) and they're from a village called Blackwood...literally about 10 minutes from where I live, if that. And the 'Phonics have some decent music too. Still don't know anybody who really listens to their music though.
    I don't mind mainstream music, but the amount of chart singles I like decreases with every year. In case anybody's wondering what other artists I like though, I dig Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith, personally; for mainstream artists, they have decent music, and Sam has an amazing voice! Never used to be keen on Adele but she also sings brilliantly. Not really into Little Mix, Taylor Swift or artists like that...especially not Drake. I can dig the occasional chart hit, but there's no particular artist I could pinpoint and say I'm a fan of.
    Back to the point though: if you actually happen to be a fan of Manics/Stereophonics, please feel free to comment. I'd love to talk to someone with a mutual interest of these bands.

    Noice! What are your favourite albums from the bands? For me, it would be The Holy Bible/Journal For Plague Lovers by Manic Street Preachers and Graffiti on The Train by Stereophonics.

    While I'm sorry to hear you were ill, I'm glad to hear their music gave you comfort.

    Yeah, it was Richey more than anything. His words and lyrics reached out to me when I was myself going through depression, anxiety and self harm, it felt like I finally had someone who understood. It also led me to join on online community, through which I've met some of my best friends who I'm still close to many years later. We all sort of came together with our various problems, and all found solace in the music and interviews.

    The Manics have done a lot for me without even realising. The only problem I have now is that I can't listen to them anymore without feeling a sense of sadness for what I, and Richey and my friends went through. Albums like The Holy Bible are just too intense for me to listen to on a daily basis anymore.

    Not going to lie, I was probably more excited than I should've been when I saw the news on Twitter that Manics were releasing their new album next April. However, that's not the only big news; turns out I've got tickets to see the 'Phonics at Cardiff next June! So excited right now.

    I love International Blue. I also dig Distant Colours; the melody makes me nostalgic for some reason. But each to their own.

    Guess you might see me in Cardiff, then. I'm attending both tours lol.

    Its a decent song, just surprised it was released as a single. I get the nostalgic thing too

    Lucky you! Is that the Stereophonics one in the Cardiff City Stadium?

    Hello, fellow Welshie! It's my first time seeing the Manics too...well, first gig actually (unless you count Squeeze in October which was more of a concert than a gig). Needless to say my first 'Phonics gig will be in June. Feels like a dream tbh.

    Are you seeing Manics in Cardiff also? Or is it someplace else?
