The Manic Street Preachers have been honored with a nomination for the 2013-14 Welsh Music Prize for their album Futureology.

The Welsh Music Prize was created in 2011 by BBC Radio 1 DJ Huw Stevens and festival promoter John Rostron to honor “the finest music made in Wales or by Welsh people around the world.”
John Rostrom said of the nominees “It’s really exciting to be announcing this shortlist and to see a few established names up against some newcomers. There’s so much great music being released from Wales and it’s a delight that the Welsh Music Prize helps highlight twelve of these albums. I hope that people will go out and buy the whole bundle for their music loving friends this Christmas and discover some new favourites, as I have through the past year of listening to so many of these records.”

The Manic Street Preachers were previously nominated in the inaugural 2010-11 year for Postcards From a Young Man. The majority of nominees over the last four years has mainly included newer artists.

Futurology was the Preachers’ twelfth studio album, receiving excellent reviews, rising to number 2 on the U.K. Album chart and 8 in Ireland. The set was recorded in Germany with Alex Silva, the producer that helmed their 1994 album The Holy Bible.
