After many hints and teases Manic Street Preachers have confirmed details of a deluxe edition of their classic 1993 second album Gold Against the Soul. The new format is available as 120-page A4 book featuring unseen images from the band's long-time photographic collaborator Mitch Ikeda, many personally annotated by Nicky Wire and original typed and handwritten lyrics from the bands own archive. It contains two CDs featuring the remastered album, previously unreleased demos, B-sides from the era, remixes and a live recording of The Clash song What's My Name.

Nicky Wire said of the release "We moved our studio a few years ago and I unearthed a lot of demos and pictures from the Gold Against the Soul era and thought it would be a shame not to let them see the light of day. We haven't always been the most complementary about this album in the past, but with hindsight it was a strange and curious record with many fans' favourites on it. James always gets a huge response when he teases the riff to Sleepflower live."

Gold Against the Soul entered the top 10 on release just over a year after their debut album Generation Terrorists, and saw the band shift musically to a classic rock sound. Lead single From Despair to Where was followed by La Tristesse Durera (Scream to a Sigh), Roses in the Hospital and Life Becoming a Landslide. Produced by Dave Eringa, who had been working in various guises with the band and continues to do so to this day, the album was recorded over six weeks at Outside / Hookend Studios.
