Atlanta based indie rock band, Manchester Orchestra make their anticipated return in support of their brand new album A Black Mile To The Surface. The album is the band’s fifth, following on from the release of 2014’s Cope.
A Black Mile to the Surface is a bold record of vision and purpose, inspired by and dwelling in a sensory and imaginative experience. It’s a reinvention of sorts, both musically and personally-a sort of cosmic worldview shift.
Manchester Orchestra had always prided themselves on their approach. The band, led by singer/lyricist Andy Hull with Robert McDowell (who is also Hull’s brother-in-law and lifelong friend), had spent their career challenging each other to build a poignant, exhilarating narrative with each new album and EP. The band had worked relentlessly to cultivate a passionate fan base the old-fashioned way: releasing music, making music videos, and touring.
Catch the bombastic, cinematic and incandescent indie rockers live in February – expect most of the classics we all know and love as well as the new Manchester sound we’ve been searching for.
