Manchester Orchestra Background
Formed in Atlanta,
Georgia, the Manchester Orchestra borrowed their name from the English city of Manchester. A hotbed for music, Manchester,
England, is responsible for spawning groups like Joy Division, Oasis, The Buzzcocks, The Fall, The Smiths, Happy Mondays,
New Order and more.
Feeling like an outcast at his "small-town-Georgia, Christian high school," the band's frontman,
Andy Hull, finished out his senior year of school at home. While completing his final year of high school, he also penned
and recorded his debut full-length album in 2004.
The band cut an album called Nobody Sings Anymore early on. But it
never reached the public because of the band's change in musical direction and other personal changes. The band issued a statement
that "the band that made the record was different to the band now." Some of the singles crafted for the album were issued
instead on You Brainstorm, I Brainstorm, but Brilliance Needs a Good Editor. Following this EP, the Manchester Orchestra cut
and issued their first album I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child. This first effort made the music industry stand up and pay
attention, leading them to ink a deal with Canvasback. The album hit the racks nationwide in the summer of 2007.
sophomore EP, Let My Pride Be What's Left Behind, arrived in the fall of 2008. The band made an announcement in early September
2008 through their MySpace blog that they had started working on their second album, Mean Everything to Nothing. In early
2009, the Manchester Orchestra made "I've Got Friends" available as a free download. The album dropped in April 2009. In January
2010, the EP, I Could Be the Only One, was released digitally and as a split with Kevin Devine. Devine also went on to work
on a full-length album with the Manchester Orchestra band members. Half the album was penned by Devine and the other half
crafted by Hull. The new project assumed the name of Bad Books and that eponymous album came out in the fall of 2010.
third full-length studio album, Simple Math, came out in 2011, followed by their fourth full-length album, Cope (2014).
