Info

Originally formed in Atlanta, Georgia in 2004, Manchester Orchestra is an award winning American Indie band with a large and growing listener base. The band consists of five members including Andy Hull (vocals), Robert McDowell (lead guitarist), Chris Freeman (keyboard and percussion), Andy Prince (bass player) and Tim Very (drums). The band is famous for its three official studio albums entitled I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child, Mean Everything to Nothing and its more recent release Simple Math. The song "I've Got Friends" from the album I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child was ranked at number 8 on the US Alternative music charts, making it their highest ranked single. There second highest rated single was "Shake It Out" from the album Mean Everything to Nothing, ranking in at the 25th US Alternative chart position. Like most Indie rock bands Manchester Orchestra can trace its origins to a very humble suburban neighborhood in Atlanta. The band gets its name from the city of Manchester in England, as the city is very well known for its rich and storied musical legacy. Manchester Orchestra is well known for recording their first official album in 2004 while still attending their final year in high school. Early on Manchester Orchestra struggled to find a suitable music style, having scrapped the entire completed album Nobody Sings Anymore because it didn't reflect the musical direction that the band wanted to take in the future. The break through year, however, would quickly arrive in 2006 with the release of the critically acclaimed album I'm Like a Virgin Losing A Child and seemingly have been on the road touring ever since.
