It’s Manchester Orchestra’s turn to play the nostalgia card.
A consistent maker of catchy hard-rock albums, the group from Atlanta is going on a tour in the fall to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their second studio album, the excellent “Mean Everything to Nothing.”
That jaunt will bring the group — whose more recent efforts include 2014’s “Cope” and 2017’s “A Black Mile to the Surface” — to Agora Cleveland on Dec. 2.
Here’s some background from a news release sent by the Agora:
2009’s Mean Everything To Nothing — Manchester Orchestra’s critically acclaimed, fan-favorite second studio album (Favorite Gentlemen/Canvasback/Columbia) — earned the band praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, SPIN, Paste (9.1/10), and Alternative Press (“a masterpiece of intricacy and honesty”), among others. The band’s latest album, 2017’s A Black Mile To The Surface (Loma Vista Recordings), expanded their dynamic sound to peak form and features production by Catherine Marks (PJ Harvey, The Killers, Foals) and John Congleton (St. Vincent, The War on Drugs, Angel Olsen), as well as their longtime studio partner, Dan Hannon. Its Alternative Radio Top 15 and AAA-topping single “The Gold” scored the band performances on both Jimmy Kimmel Live and CBS This Morning: Saturday Sessions, and the album received additional career-high praise from Entertainment Weekly, Pitchfork, Vulture, Noisey, and many more.
