Manics Hint At Futorology With Free Live EP (UPDATED!)

Well they haven't identified a release date yet for Futurology, the follow-up to last year's sublime Rewind The Film, but they have new press shots that seem to signal a "new look" for the upcoming album -- all sleek and futuristic ('natch) where the last one was all rustic and natural.

Or something like that.

In the meantime, you can download a free EP from the Welsh geniuses via their website:

The EP is "Faster", "Kevin Carter", "Motown Junk", and "Slash N Burn", all recorded live at the 02 Arena in December 2011.

Here's the visuals to go along with the first cut on this EP.

UPDATE: The Manics unveiled some new tunes at their gig in Leeds last night (March 28, UK time). Here's a taste of the title tune from the upcoming record and another track.

Big "thanks!" to the user who shot and posted these clips!
