Manchester Orchestra

As led by singer/songwriter/guitarist Andy Hull, the maturity of Manchester Orchestra's songwriting belied the fact that the bandmembers were barely legal when their group sprung into existence. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, the indie rock outfit grew out of songs that Hull had begun writing while attending high school. Encouraged by positive response, he opted for home schooling during his senior year, which afforded him enough time to compose and record in the studio. Friends began collaborating with him over time, and Manchester Orchestra soon solidified into a trio comprising Hull, bassist Jonathan Corley, and drummer Jeremiah Edmond.

Hull's songwriting noticeably progressed with the addition of his friends, and the band courted its first fans with an EP release. You Brainstorm, I Brainstorm, But Brilliance Needs a Good Editor thus appeared in 2005 through the band's own label, Favorite Gentlemen Recordings. With the EP out, Manchester Orchestra began playing shows around the Southeast and added keyboardist Chris Freeman to the mix. Buzz about the band's music began creating a stir beyond the Atlanta city limits, and the guys were invited to play slots at the South by Southwest and Lollapalooza festivals in 2006 before beginning to work on their full-length album that summer. The resulting I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child was issued by the year's end, offering up a poignant collection of memorable hooks and thoughtful narratives that showcased a similar style to acts like the Weakerthans and Death Cab for Cutie.

Eventually, studio intern turned guitarist Robert McDowell joined the lineup permanently, and as a steady buzz continued to grow -- especially on Internet blogs -- Manchester Orchestra snagged an opening spot on Brand New's largely sold-out tour in spring 2007. The increased exposure caught the interest of Canvasback Recordings, which reissued the band's debut album that summer. A second EP, Let My Pride Be What's Left Behind, followed in October 2008, and the band remained in the studio during the subsequent months to perfect its sophomore album. Released in 2009, Mean Everything to Nothing found the band working alongside producer Joe Chiccarelli, famous for his work with the Shins and My Morning Jacket. In 2011, the band released their third full-length studio album, Simple Math, a concept album built around Hull's life story. In 2014, Manchester Orchestra delivered their fourth album, the heavy, post-hardcore-infused Cope. That same year, the band returned with Hope, a companion piece to Cope, featuring reworked acoustic versions of all the album's songs. ~ Corey Apar, Rovi

hey hey hey they came out of my school woop woop
This band draws emotions and feelings out in people that I've never seen before. That coupled with their incredible stage presence makes Manchester Orchestra one of my all time favorites.
This band is just some clown howling. Thumbs down
All 3 of you are wrong. In the Bible God gave mana to the Jews leaving Egypt. Hulls music is clearly influenced by religion and I believe he has confirmed that he was referring to the mana of the bible before.
You're both wrong he says "mana is a hell of a drug". It's a generalized term for magic and also a generalized term for serval different kinds of drugs. The more you know, reading rainbow.
Jackson, I think you're a little skewed. i think it's Man, E is a hell of a drug. As in ecstasy. And it's also enough is never quite enough
Manny is a hell of a drug. I need a little more I think...beca u s e enough is never really enough.....w h a t ' s enough?
Mean Everything To Nothing is the best album.

Let's not forget about Andy Hull's side project: Right Away, Great Captain!
Manchester Orchestra has gotten me through so many rough spots throughout my life, I do not know where I would have been it it was not for them. I love you guys, and your music. Keep up the amazing work, and I hope to see you guys live someday. You are all so amazing!!
This is weird but in a very bad way, like that uncle that is not allowed around the children.
I saw them back in 2006 I think. It was whenever they were playing with mewithoutYou . I did not know their greatness then, but I do now.
It's a shame that so many people I know, never heard of them. What a sound! Keep it up

An ecclectic mind, creating a singularly unique approach to musical mind-control . His songs sink me in sadness or push me to throw the door open wide and scream lyrics at unsuspecting neighbors. I would believe someone if they told me he was attempting to passive-aggr e s s i v e l y take over the world through good music.

Manchester is my all time favorite band! Beautiful lyrics, amazing live performances , and a voice that kills it. Keep up the good work!
masbaile
Awesome. Awesome. Can't say it enough. Great live band with a sound and presence that is hard to beat. I had the treat of getting a 50-cent tongue in cheek rendition at my first MO concert and was totally hooked.
Saw them in Lincoln, NE, on Friday. What a band they are... Certainly wasn't let down, and the video for Simple Math may be the greatest thing ever created.

I saw Manchester Orchestra last night at the House of Blues in Chicago...IT WAS AMAZING.
fable4242
my obsession for brand new has evolved into an obsession with Manchester, Bad Books is growing on me more and more also
my friend told me she didnt like manchester orchestra a few days ago.

i knew she had never listened to them before, and even if she did, she's much too shallow to understand what any of it means.

so i slapped her.
they're amazing live
love this band!
why does my manchester orchestra station rarely play manchester orchestra!?! ? ! ? !
Mean everything to nothing is definitely my favorite, but simple math is amazing as well.
LOVE the new album "Simple Math" Who's heard it?! Listen to it here>> http://www.c o l u m b i a r e c o r d s . c o m / s i m p l e m a t h /

no matter how many times their songs replay, the more I want to listen. Good thing I have their cd.
i broke my leg at a M.O. show, half way through their 3rd song...best time ever, the music, along with the double jack'n'coke, helped me forget the pain for the remainder of the show
