Manchester Orchestra

Manchester Orchestra formed in 2004 in Atlanta, Georgia and features rhythm guitarist-singer-songwriter Andy Hull, lead guitarist Robert McDowell, bassist Andy Prince and drummer Tim Very. Former drummer Jeremiah Edmond parted ways with the band in January 2010 to focus on his family and on running the band's record label. The first EP released by Manchester Orchestra was 2005’s You Brainstorm, I Brainstorm, but Brilliance Needs a Good Editor. Following the EP, Manchester Orchestra released their debut album I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child in 2007. This album gained the attention of the music industry, and eventually led to a record deal. The band continued building momentum with the release of their second EP, Let My Pride Be What's Left Behind, the following year. Manchester Orchestra has four more studio albums to its name: Mean Everything to Nothing (2009), Simple Math (2011), Cope (2014) (as well as its acoustic version, Hope) and A Black Mile to the Surface (2017).

The group has also played several major festivals like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella, Shaky Knees Music Festival, and Firefly Music Festival.
