Preview: Manchester Orchestra at the Portsmouth Pyramids (26/09/14)


Atlanta quintet Manchester Orchestra are back with a fourth album and they’re headed to the UK. Portsmouth kicks off a tour that promises to reinvigorate the bare bones of alternative rock. If you were a fan of their previous album ‘Simple Math’, then you’ll be in for a shock. COPE, released¬†April 1st, contrasts the former placid vibes with a high energy celebration of drums and guitar. It’s a dynamic and powerful dose of poetry that reflects the intense and vibrant performances the band are famous for.

Joining them will be fellow Favourite Gentlemen label mate Kevin Devine & the Goddamn Band and Bad Books, a collaborative project from Devine and Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull. ¬†The band will visit some of the biggest cities in the UK, including Bristol, Manchester, and culminating in London at the 02 Shepherds Bush.

Having previously shared a stage with bands such as Blink 182 and My Chemical Romance, Manchester Orchestra are a band to watch.

Tickets are available for all UK tour dates here.
