BUZZCOCKS are back with a brand new video which they're premiering exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

'Manchester Rain' is the second single to be taken from the band's new album Sonics In The Soul, their first since the tragic death of Pete Shelley in December 2018.

"We were doing a gig in Manchester and it was pouring with rain," says guitarist and singer Steve Diggle. "And these kids said to me, 'We're gonna start a band'. And I thought, that was me, like, forty years ago and here we are stood in the rain, and it took me back. But the song's like a metaphorical rain, innit? It's like your hopes and dreams. But it's not about being a success. The thing was being able to find yourself and do something in life... we're sayin' what we wanna say and we've found some way of sayin' something!"

Set for release on 23 September through Cherry Red, Sonics In The Soul is available to pre-order here.
