Southern boys Manchester Orchestra will release a new album this Spring.  The record, entitled Simple Math, will be available May 10 via Favorite Gentlemen/Columbia.

According to lead singer Andy Hull, Simple Math is a concept album.

"This record is two dueling coversations between me and my wife, and me and my God.  Sometimes even for myself, it's difficult to decipher which one I'm actually talking to.  Everything I've written in the past has been about those things. This album is the most realized form of my questioning."

Manchester Orchestra plan to tour in support of their third full-length release.  I saw them once at the Orbit Room when they opened up for Silversun Pickups.  They are a great live band so hopefully they come back to Grand Rapids this year.
