It’s been three years since Atlanta indie rockers Manchester Orchestra delivered new music.
But coming April 1, “Cope” will change that.
The album, recorded at their new home studio built in the old house where they used to reside together, was self-produced along with long-time collaborator Dan Hannon.
“Cope” is described as “an unrelenting an unapologetically heavy 38 minutes of rock.” Check out the new tune “Top Notch” in this YouTube audio clip.
Manchester Orchestra will also hit the road this spring for a two-month U.S. tour as well as April dates in the U.K. They’re slated to return home for a show at The Tabernacle May 30. Tickets are on sale now for $21.
Also on the local front, von Grey has unveiled their new EP, “Awakening.”
The six-song collection from the Alpharetta-based angelic-voice sisters is available at all digital retailers; a vinyl edition can be purchased here.
The EP is the follow-up to the girls’ self-released, self-titled 2012 EP, which helped land them high-profile appearances on David Letterman and Conan O’Brien’s late-night shows, among others.
Von Grey will take to the road in March opening for Ron Pope and will also perform at SXSW.
