Following the success of their third album ‘Simple Math’ out earlier this year, Manchester Orchestra return to the UK for a headline UK tour. Kicking off in Bristol on October 2nd and ending with an appearance at Camden’s KoKo on October 7th. This is the band’s first ever UK Headline Tour, after opening for the likes of Kings of Leon and Biffy Clyro, as well as performing twice at the Reading and Leeds Festivals and Latitude.

Manchester Orchestra was formed in 2004 when front man Andy Hull was 16. The band includes lifelong friends Jonathan Corley on bass, keyboardist Chris Freeman, guitarist Robert McDowell and drummer Tim Very. Not even near drinking age, Manchester Orchestra left the comforts of their suburban childhood in 2005, put over 200 shows under their belt and started to build a fan base.

Manchester Orchestra have earned two nominations at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards which include Best Editing and Best Special Effects for their ”Simple Math” video.
