Manchester Orchestra Leaves Columbia

Posted by - 04:00 PM on 11/16/11
Update: The band will not be changing their name. - DB

Manchester Orchestra revealed in a new interview that they have left Columbia Records and will most likely release their next album under a different band name.
From the Interview We are no longer with Columbia. We released our final record through them. It would just be through Favorite Gentlemen and maybe some other imprint. I donít think itíll be under the name Manchester though. I want to try to do something like Sgt. Peppers. Not musically, but those dudes made those records under the pretense of a different band. They became this other band and it allowed their creative ability to go wherever they wanted because they werenít under the pressure of making another Beatles album. We want to try to create another band within us to release something without any predisposed thoughts of what itís going to be. Manchester is turning into a heavy direction musically, so I donít know what itíll be like.

To be clear, he didn't say ManOrch was done as their name. Just that they might release a future album/EP under a new name.

There is a difference in your statement.

Either way the whole explaination and analogy is pretty misleading. Billy Shears = Ringo = Beatle.

Idk this is just funny.

Edit: Ringo* my bad.

Also heavy direction musically is awesome. Hope it's more like the red EP from the dear hunter collection than the drivel that was simple math

"I don't think it'll be under the name Manchester though."

Headline: "Likely to Change Name"

I don't think there's anything wrong here...

I freaked out for a second, but it doesn't seem like they're abandoning the name Manchester - it's just for this one album/EP.

Okay, breathing.
