MANCHESTER Orchestra will perform this October as they head to Cardiff University, Solus.

They will perform tracks from their latest album ‘Cope’ when they appear at the venue on Monday, October 6.

Cope was self-produced alongside Manchester Orchestra’s long-time collaborating partner Dan Hannon, and mixed by John Agnello at Fluxivity Studios in Brooklyn. They recorded the entire record in the home studio they built themselves after six months spent gutting and refurbishing the old house they used to live in together. The follow up to 2011’s Simple Math, the band’s critically acclaimed and highest charting album to date, Cope is an unrelenting and unapologetically heavy 38 minutes of rock.

After several months of writing and recording between June 2012 and March 2013, Hull along with the rest of the band – lead guitarist Robert McDowell, keyboardist/percussionist Chris Freeman, bassist Andy Prince and drummer Tim Very – were forced to pare down the 28 or so completed songs in order to round out the album that would become Cope, leaving a collection of songs that is refreshingly direct and succinct in nature.

Cope is available for purchase via iTunes.
