Andy Hull speaks with On Record about some of the themes behind Manchester Orchestra's Cope and other topics.
The lyrics for me were far more self help than self loathing, they were more about trying to get through the bullshit and kind of continue on and I think that’s something in life that everybody does in different ways and you cope in different ways and sometimes there are good ways and bad ways. I felt like when I was trying to come up with a title for the record, I’d asked people what they thought of the word cope and every single person I asked would have a different meaning, I liked that idea in the lyrics that people could interpret them in different ways from each other...

Manchester Orchestra's "After the Scripture" is on the Dallas Buyers Club soundtrack -- I don't remember posting about this. Stream it on Rdio or Spotify.

The second "Inside Kevin Devine" feature has been posted via PropertyOfZack. Jesse Lacey, Andy Hull, The God Damn Band, and many others provide commentary.
So I met Kevin eventually at an outdoor show we played together, and I think Miracle had already kind of split up, and he was this kind of crazy twitchy kid who was really good at guitar and sang solo on stage at hardcore and emo shows around New York. So then we were friends, and that was that. I don’t know how things go from there, but I do know that watching Kevin over the years, I’ve realized that while I or other musicians I know had to develop something, Kevin seemed always capable of everything. He always listened to cool...

Last night at Manchester Orchestra's sold out NYC show, the band played a couple of new songs (one of which was "Cope." Both songs were very loud and very catchy.) Before one of them, Andy Hull announced to the crowd a cryptic and possibly sarcastic statement, which is paraphrased below.
We have a new record that's never going to come out. But if it did come out, this song would be on it.

Hopefully this is just Mr. Hull messing with us, but who knows. Either way, check out the band's tour dates for the rest of the year, and recordings of some of their new songs live, in the replies.

Manchester Orchestra recently covered Faces' "Ooh La La" for the AV Club.
Andy Hull added some extra pathos by stripping things way back and sweetening up the "ooh la la"s. Manchester Orchestra's latest is 2011's Simple Math, and they're currently working on a follow-up.
