About Manchester Orchestra
Indie rock band Manchester
Orchestra is comprised of vocalist and guitarist Andy Hull, percussionist and keyboardist Chris Freeman, lead guitarist Robert
McDowell, drummer Tim Very, and bassist Andy Prince. The band first started to make a name for themselves after releasing
their debut album, "I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child," in 2006. The album caught the attention of critics and fans alike,
and Manchester Orchestra started to establish themselves and gain a following. After the release of "I'm Like a Virgin Losing
a Child," Manchester Orchestra released an EP, "Let My Pride Be What's Left Behind," which included songs like "Wolves at
Night," "I Can Feel a Hot One," and "I Was a Lid." The album's song "I Can Feel a Hot One" was later featured on an episode
of the television series Gossip Girl.
By 2008, Manchester Orchestra had returned to the studio to begin working on their
second album, and they elicited the help of producer Joe Chicarrelli, whose previous work has included My Morning Jacket and
The Shins. The band's second studio album, "Mean Everything to Nothing," was released in 2009, and included popular songs
like "I've Got Friends," "Shake It Out," and "The Only One." Manchester Orchestra's second studio album proved to be what
they needed to advance into the indie genre's mainstream, and the album entered the Billboard 200 chart at the number 37 position,
and number 11 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart.
After the success of "Mean Everything to Nothing," Manchester Orchestra
followed up with their third studio album, "Simple Math," in 2011. With their third release, the band tried something a little
different, and "Simple Math" was a concept album that explored the perspective of a young man who starts questioning everything
in his life. Spurred along by the popular title track, the album was a success, and it ended up debuting at the number 21
spot on the Billboard 200 chart and number 8 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart. Manchester Orchestra's most recent record
release is "Cope," which has likewise garnered praise from fans and critics.
Manchester Orchestra's Breakthrough
Manchester Orchestra first appeared on the indie scene with their debut studio album, "I'm Like a Virgin Losing
a Child," which was enough to start generating a following in their genre. After their debut, Manchester Orchestra released
a well-received EP, titled "Let My Pride Be What's Left Behind," which garnered more attention for the band. Songs were soon
featured on television on media, and Manchester Orchestra continued on their path to success. In 2009, Manchester Orchestra
was poised to become a breakout band, and they did just that with their second studio album, ""Mean Everything to Nothing,"
which spawned the fan-favorite songs, "Shake It Out," "I've got Friends," and "The Only One." With a debut of number 37 on
the Billboard 200 chart and number 11 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart, "Mean Everything to Nothing" marked a turning point
for Manchester Orchestra. Returning with their third studio album, "Simple Math," Manchester Orchestra continued to amp it
up, and this album's release brought in sales of 18,000 copies in just the first week of its release. The band has recently
released their fourth studio album, "Cope," which includes singles like "Top Notch" and "Every Stone."
