Andy Hull is on the latest episode of Matt Pryor's podcast, Nothing to Write Home About. He talks about the new project Manchester Orchestra is working on right now as a "completely alternate version of Cope," called Hope. He says they're "stripping the songs down and re-doing them." He also mentions that he's "mixing lyrics up and writing songs and melodies differently" and that it'll be "its own thing." He says it'll be released in November. He also says they will be touring on this alternate version and will be playing in old churches and venues like that. You can hear the audio starting around 48:35 on the podcast.

Chuck Ragan, Matt Pryor, and the other Revival Tour members share the first song they learned on guitar.
One of the very first songs I learned on guitar was Otis Redding’s ‘(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,’ taught to me by the same fella who taught me some of the first standard chords I have ever learned, some 25 to 26 years ago. Mr. Roy Ridenour, one of my dad’s buds, used to come over for dinner and pick his guitar with anything from bluegrass to blues to old soul and folk tunes. Wherever you are Roy, thanks for all your patience and positive words that kept me from giving up!

One of our members recently sat down with singer/songwriter Matt Pryor.
From the InterviewFor a while in his career, Pryor was frustrated with some of his favorite tunes versus fan favorites. “We wrote ‘Don’t Hate Me’ in an hour, and I can’t figure out why people get into it,” he laughs. “A lot of times the songs that I hate are the ones that a lot of people like, and the ones that I like, people are like, ‘heh.’ If I think of it from a fan’s perspective, then I know they want to hear some older stuff. I’ll play new things, but I’m not going to force feed [newer songs].”
