With cryptic new Instagram post...

Manic Street Preachers seem to be hinting at a possible re-issue of their 1993 album 'Gold Against The Soul'.

The album followed their explosive debut 'Generation Terrorists', which the Welsh band vowed would sell 20 million copies - globally - before precipitating their untimely split.

Those sales weren't quite achieved at the time, leading to the calmer, rather more palatial arena rock sound of 'Gold Against The Soul'.

Often mis-understood and much-maligned - not least by the band themselves - it remains a stately listen, with nuanced songwriting and lyrical flair.

After all, those words were helmed by Richey Edwards and Nicky Wire... 

Now Manic Street Preachers seem to be hinting at a re-issue, posting something cryptic on Instagram.
