The Manchester Orchestra just can’t get off the road. Supporting its debut album, “I’m Like A Virgin Losing A Child,” the rousing five piece Atlanta-based band heads out on its fourth tour this year, this time a 19-date co-headlining tour with the Annuals beginning Oct. 26 in its hometown.
Only available on the upcoming tour, Manchester Orchestra and Annuals will offer fans an exclusive limited edition split 7-inch single, which contains a cover of Manchester Orchestra’s song “Where Have You Been?” by the Annuals and a cover of the Annuals “Brother” by Manchester Orchestra. For the artwork, each band re-interpreted the other’s album art.
Since the album’s release, Manchester Orchestra has performed at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Austin City Limits, and the Reading and Leeds festivals. The band is also scheduled to play live on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” on Oct. 31.
Their soon-to-be released documentary “What’s Left Behind” follows the band for one week
through Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas while on tour and highlights the close bond forged between band members and the importance of family and friends.
