Fans of Manchester Orchestra are devoted to the ever-stimulating and prolific stories of fictional characters created by the band’s front-man, Andy Hull. So it comes as no surprise that the Atlanta rock outfit’s latest single, “The Gold”, quickly paired with announcements of a new forthcoming album and fall tour, has been met with near ceaseless applause.
Immediately grabbing stimulation with a delicately assembled 6/8 time signature, “The Gold” sets a peculiar pace for itself to match the haunting animated photography that composes its accompanying music video. Somehow drab enthusiasm seeps from Hull’s voice, his song-writing reverberating with enumerated confidence as the composition unfolds. In contemplation, the single and video together seem to present a newly peculiar cast of settings and characters for the still forthcoming LP- A Black Mile To The Surface; out July 28th.
You can catch Manchester Orchestra on tour in support of their forthcoming album at The Fillmore in Philadelphia on October 1st – tickets and details HERE!
