|PropertyOfZack has published a pretty massive interview with Kevin Devine and Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra), which can read here. They discussed upcoming RSD releases, the recording schedules for each band, and more. |
KD: Well they’re not… The Jesse one is a rock record and it’s like a ROCK record. More than anything I’ve ever worked on so far.
AH: Yeah it’s bloodthirsty. Sick. It is. I’ve only heard really bad sounding demos, but it’s a version of Kevin. It’s a version of him that’s kind of this punky, bloodthirsty, loud rock thing. And you can hear the Jesse influence. There’s this section that goes to half time in one of these songs that I really like. It was totally a momment where I was like, “Oh dude, that part’s sick.” And I asked Kevin, like, “Who’s idea was that?” And he was like “That was Jesse’s idea.” Those kind of like fused-in sections, I can’t wait to hear it. Definitely when I heard them, right before we left for this tour, I said I think it’s the best shit.
