Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers have revealed new track 30 Year War is an anti-Margaret Thatcher protest song. The trio wrote the "angry" song before the former British Prime Minister died earlier this year (13). Bassist Nicky Wire tells NME, "It starts with the miners' strike and moves through (soccer stadium disaster) Hillsborough, and it's a critique of the attack on the working classes over the last 30 years. It's the most spiteful, angry track on the album." The tune will feature on the band's upcoming 11th studio album, Rewind The Film, which will be released on 16 September (13).
