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...

Our interview with Manchester Orchestra can be found here.
From the InterviewThis record draws you in and then hopefully takes you on some sort of musical journey. That sounds so stupid, but you know what I mean. It kind of brings you along, invites you in and takes you through a whole bunch of weird wormholes.
Jonathan Bautts on 05/05/11 - 12:26 PM
In a new interview, Manchester Orchestra said they hope to release a b-side album later this year of slower and different songs that did not make it on Simple Math.
In This InterviewThe thing about our band is that we really love the studio and touring is a separate entity that we do because we have to and because we like seeing our fans and have them not just be an idea. We do love just sitting in the studio. If we can get some time to sit down in the studio and hash out the songs that didnít make it, weíll try to get a b-side album out this year.
