Andy from Manchester Orchestra blogs about his thoughts on 2007.
Blog"i am going to make it through this year... if it kills me"

As we wrap up the last few shows of our tour here in the UK and for the entire year, i am overwhelmed with a sense of fulfillment. when our band looked at 2007 we made ourselves a promise, and that promise was to play 250 shows this year. Oddly looking up now, we have (somehow) done it. I think when we made that challenge to ourselves we had absolutely NO idea how much of a difficult, challenging, growing, and incredible experience it would actually be. We had no idea how many unbelievable people and friends we would meet along the way. How many new brothers...

Manchester Orchestra has been added to the upcoming Kings of Leon / Black Rebel Motorcycle Club tour in September and October.
Message From The BandWe are excited to announce that we have just been added as support to much of the Kings of Leon / Black Rebel Motorcycle Club tour in September and October.

In order to do this incredible tour we are having to cancel the September 9 show in Jacksonville, FL and the September 10 show in Orlando, FL and move around some shows in the UK.

We are really bummed about this and promise to make it up to you guys in Florida somehow. If you have bought tickets to the shows in Florida, just know we are figuring out something cool to do for you...
