Manchester Orchestra announce one New Zealand show only

ONE NEW ZEALAND SHOW ONLY
POWERSTATION - NOVEMBER 17th

Manchester Orchestra are making their long-awaited New Zealand debut, performing a one off show at the iconic Auckland venue, The Powerstation on November 17.

The band will be performing their new full-length album, Cope, along with tracks from their extensive back catalogue.

Frontman Andy Hull, lead guitarist Robert McDowell, keyboardist/percussionist Chris Freeman, bassist Andy Prince and drummer Tim Very completed nearly 30 tracks for the album that were cut down to the 11 for the final release.

The album is the first for the band since 2011’s concept album Simple Math. “Whereas Simple Math was a different palate with each song, a different colour”, the band had a different direction for Cope, “I wanted this to be black and red the whole time”, explains Hull.

Manchester Orchestra has always been about truth and passion. It’s why Alternative Press gave (USA) MO’s 2009 acclaimed Mean Everything to a five-star lead review that called the album “a masterpiece of intricacy and honesty.” You can feel their passion in the power of Andy Hull’s voice and the fury of the band’s music in every track they’ve ever laid down, a power that wraps itself around you and demands your attention as Hull’s lyrics guide you through the world as he sees it.

With no other New Zealand shows or tour dates announced, the passion and intensity found within the band's catalogue translates into a live show not to be missed.
