Manic Street Preachers originally gained a loyal following and cult status with their combination of androgynous glam punk imagery, outspoken invective and songs about culture, alienation, boredom and despair.
The band's later albums retained a leftist politicization and intellectual lyrical style, while adopting a broader alternative rock sound, especially after the mysterious disappearance of lyricist and rhythm guitarist Richey Edwards in 1995.
This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours is their fifth album, originally released in 1998.
It features the singles "The Everlasting", "You Stole the Sun from My Heart", "Tsunami" and "If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next".
The latter was their first single to debut at #1 on the UK Singles Chart.
On top of this, the album won Best British Album at the 1999 Brit Awards.
