You've seen them on the 'Late Show with David Letterman,' 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien,' and heard their music on CW's 'Gossip Girl,' 'One Tree Hill' and saucy shows like '90210' and British teen drama 'Skins.' Now you can see the enigmatic Atlanta rockers Manchester Orchestra right here on the Interface.
While the band's third studio album may be unified by singer Andy Hull's thematic struggle to make sense of his life, his career and his marriage, the record is not as much a traditional concept piece as a 10-song dialog between the harrowed frontman and himself.
At times reflective, confessional, furious and bitter; 'Simple Math' is a revelatory trial by fire, a portrait of a man still trapped in the rubble of a collapse, exulting at the light at the end of the tunnel.
"In some ways, I don't care that people know it's a story about me and my wife re-finding this love for each other. Maybe people think it's cooler if it is [a concept album]. It gives more" -- Andy Hull
