Founded by lead vocalist, songwriter, and rhythm guitarist Andy Hull, Manchester Orchestra's early years were marked by a relentless drive to craft a unique sound that defied genre constraints. The band's current lineup is also comprised of lead guitarist Robert McDowell, bassist Andy Prince and drummer Tim Very. Their debut album, "I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child," offered a taste of what was to come, but it was with their second album, "Mean Everything to Nothing," in 2009 that they truly made their mark. This release introduced the world to their signature blend of emotive, introspective lyrics, and powerful, anthemic rock.
