Manics’ limited white vinyl LP

The Manic Street Preachers‘ forthcoming album Resistance is Futile will be available as limited edition ‘indies only’ white vinyl pressing.

Obviously, it’s worth checking with your local indie record shop, but if you don’t have a local indie record store then HMV do have stock (UK shipping only).

The SDE shop might get some white vinyl at a later date, but for now we do have the limited 2CD deluxe edition and the black vinyl version. HMV and Amazon also have those two formats available.

Resistance is Futile will be released on 6 April 2018.

went for the red one on the Fan website

Clear vunyl is the best sounding as it doesn’t contain any colourant therefore is “pure”. Coloured vinyl’s (including black vinyl) contain tiny magnetic particles which affect pickup/cartridge performance.


No issues with white vinyl for me – the Noel and Liam’s were both fine sounding to me


Black vinyl usually offers the best sound but obviously the most important factor is the pressing plant, the quality/generation of the master/mix and the pressing quality (virgin vinyl vs recycled vinyl, weight, etc.). If the pressing comes from bad tapes or vinyl because original master tapes have been lost then the color of the vinyl won’t matter that much. You’ll find various opinions on colored vinyl and which is the best but there’s a consensus on picture discs : stay away if you care about sound quality.

Usually, I only buy black pressings. Colored vinyl and picture discs are for collectors, people buy them new for that purpose and not to play them.

Since when was HMV an “indie” store? If it makes it possible for fans who can’t get it from an actual “indie” store then fair enough (though those may also be selling online) but why call it that rather than just “another opportunity to sell you a 3rd or 4th copy of the same release”? And yes, I am very much guilty of multiple purchases myself but I do have a problem with an addiction to lovely vinyl: not sure this site is the best support group for me!!

So I bought the superfanbundle and now I must also buy the white vinyl. Not very nice.


I might be wrong on this, but does anyone else think that white vinyl is the worst sounding type of vinyl available? Apart of course from picture discs, which are completely useless for listening. I’ve had so many white vinyls of different albums, not one sounding great.

agreed for some reason white vinyl has more noise than any other coloured vinyl

The official band web store also had / still has a red vinyl for £22.


On the previous occasion I opted for a deluxe rather than standard edition of this band’s latest album… they only went and omitted the best track! [‘Bag Lady,’ which was a hidden track on the standard CD of ‘Journal for Plague Lovers’ but not on the 2CD book verision on any form].

It’s been a few years though, I imagine I should be over it by now.

There goes another £20! SDE is bad for my bank balance (and I’ve already ordered the now sold old signed cd deluxe edition!). Thanks Paul!
