Manic Street Preachers have revealed they have been asked to appear on Question Time.

The band shared the unusual press request with fans on Twitter yesterday (September 26):

"Been asked to do question time again- time to unleash my inner nye bevan/malcolm tucker(thick of it)onto the tv screens of britain???x"

The band are due to wrap up a six-date UK tour in support of the album with gigs at Manchester's Ritz tonight (September 27) and Glasgow's Barrowlands on Sunday (September 29).
