The second "Inside Kevin Devine" feature has been posted via PropertyOfZack. Jesse Lacey, Andy Hull, The God Damn Band, and many others provide commentary.
So I met Kevin eventually at an outdoor show we played together, and I think Miracle had already kind of split up, and he was this kind of crazy twitchy kid who was really good at guitar and sang solo on stage at hardcore and emo shows around New York. So then we were friends, and that was that. I donít know how things go from there, but I do know that watching Kevin over the years, Iíve realized that while I or other musicians I know had to develop something, Kevin seemed always capable of everything. He always listened to cool...

Last night at Manchester Orchestra's sold out NYC show, the band played a couple of new songs (one of which was "Cope." Both songs were very loud and very catchy.) Before one of them, Andy Hull announced to the crowd a cryptic and possibly sarcastic statement, which is paraphrased below.
We have a new record that's never going to come out. But if it did come out, this song would be on it.

Hopefully this is just Mr. Hull messing with us, but who knows. Either way, check out the band's tour dates for the rest of the year, and recordings of some of their new songs live, in the replies.

Manchester Orchestra recently covered Faces' "Ooh La La" for the AV Club.
Andy Hull added some extra pathos by stripping things way back and sweetening up the "ooh la la"s. Manchester Orchestra's latest is 2011's Simple Math, and they're currently working on a follow-up.

PropertyOfZack has published a pretty massive interview with Kevin Devine and Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra), which can read here. They discussed upcoming RSD releases, the recording schedules for each band, and more.
KD: Well theyíre notÖ The Jesse one is a rock record and itís like a ROCK record. More than anything Iíve ever worked on so far.
AH: Yeah itís bloodthirsty. Sick. It is. Iíve only heard really bad sounding demos, but itís a version of Kevin. Itís a version of him thatís kind of this punky, bloodthirsty, loud rock thing. And you can hear the Jesse influence. Thereís this section that goes to half time in one of these songs that I really like. It was totally a momment...

Manchester Orchestra bassist Jonathan Corley has left the band.
Another time for change has come in the life of Manchester Orchestra. Our dear friend and bassist Jonathan Corley has made the decision to part ways with the band and pursue another career outside of playing music. This was a very obviously a very difficult decision but J is our eternal brother and we wish him the absolute best. There is no doubt that he will find success in any area he pursues. He will remain a part of the Manchester Orchestra family forever and there is no way we can thank him enough for the time he has spent with us over the last 9 years.

Please see below for a message from J.

Manchester Orchestra posted up a blog about their 1/2 of the upcoming split with Thrice.
Message from AndyPEOPLE! it's andy. i wanted to take a minute and thank you for the response the last few days to the news about some "new" music. we are so stoked to get this thing officially out into the world, even if there are only a couple hundred copies available. the story behind the making of our half of this record is a pretty cool one. i thought i would share with you the history behind why we decided to record what is undeniably THE BEST 14 minute stoner-rock version of "Don't Speak" by No Doubt to ever exist.

when manchester was writing mean everything to nothing i was in the middle...

Kevin Devine and Andy Hull didn't want Bad Books to be a one time thing, and with Bad Books II, they're also showing it's not a one trick pony.

Update From JonathanTwo more hours of driving in All Get Outís van and Iíll be flying back home out of Pittsburgh. The last week flew by as the first ďFavorite Gentlemen TourĒ made itís way up North. For months now, Iíve looked forward to spending time on the road with each of bands. Charlotte natives Junior Astronomers turn heads immediately every night by unleashing their own energetic and intricate indie pop songs. Itís truly been a pleasure to spend time with every band/crew member.

I canít begin to explain how much I appreciate the continued support from devoted fans all across this...
