Manchester Orchestra Launch Patreon

Manchester Orchestra have launched a Patreon:

I feel like artistically, our subscription service should also have a concept, a time frame where there is a theme revolving around what we are releasing each month. This first theme is called “Simple Math/Sinful Math.” Next year marks the ten year anniversary of our third album, Simple Math. While writing that album we always had plans to go back and release a much more raw and exposed version of this album with new songs and no strings. we are already planning a really cool expansive LP including the songs from Sinful Math, acoustic demos, and full band demos to be released next year. I’ve thought about this a lot for many years and my biggest concern was making sure that what we ended up releasing and providing is actually worth your money. I hope this is a way where we can lift the curtain on this album and really pull it apart while also releasing extra goodies and all sorts of content from us. Thank you, as always, for supporting our band and if this is something that you aren’t interested in or can’t afford at the moment I can assure you that we will continue putting all of our best interests and passion into creating the best music that we possibly can. We really love you all.

Manchester Orchestra – “Xela”

Manchester Orchestra

Manchester Orchestra have released a new song produced by T Bone Burnett as part of a new series with Amazon. Andy Hull talked a little about the collaboration:

Having wanted to work with him for years, we were really excited to take a song we love and hear it through T Bone’s lens. He encouraged us to follow our instincts and to let the simplicity do the talking. This song started as a late night lullaby and has since evolved into something a bit more majestic and powerful. It was a true privilege getting to work with T Bone and his team on this song and we look forward to future collaborations.

Manchester Orchestra Talk Beer

Manchester Orchestra talked with October about beer. My kinda article:

As I’m getting older, I’m just starting to like Bud Lights—you know what I mean? I can drink 10 of the damn things and keep my act together. When I’m going for taste and stuff, I do really love Stella. I think it’s a great beer. I’m liking lagers lately, too. That’s what I’ve been searching for. We just had one the other night called 3Sisters or something like that. It was delicious. One of the better-tasting lagers that I’ve had in awhile. We went and got oysters.
