30.04.2021 ALBUM OUT NOW: MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA – THE MILLION MASKS OF GOD

NL – De Amerikaanse indierockband Manchester Orchestra heeft vandaag hun zesde studioalbum The Million Masks of God uitgebracht.

Met The Million Masks of God treedt de band uit Atlanta nog maar eens uit hun comfortzone en testen ze de grenzen af van hun unieke en herkenbare sound. Het is de opvolger van hun geprezen album A Black Mile To the Surface dat in 2017 verscheen.

Manchester Orchestra creëerde met The Million Masks of God een variatie aan kleine “filmalbums” die bedoeld zijn om achtereenvolgens en in één keer te beluisteren. De nummers vertellen het verhaal van een man die de engel des doods ontmoet en hem terug meeneemt naar verschillende hoogtepunten in zijn afgelopen leven.

EN (French version not available) – American indie rock band Manchester Orchestra have released their sixth studio album The Million Masks of God, available as of today via Loma Vista Recordings.

The Million Masks of God presents an even grander scale of the epic and re-focused approach to record-making that the Atlanta-based band has forged in recent years. Their newest album finds the band relentlessly pushing themselves to create a work that breaks beyond the scope and limits of every previous release in an effort to create their most towering achievement to date, all while sorting through the aftermath of a devastating loss.

Manchester Orchestra approached The Million Masks of God with the intention of creating tightly-woven “movie albums” designed to be listened to in sequence and in a single sitting, with the songs working together to tell a bold, long-form narrative. The album explores the loose story of a man’s encounter with the angel of death as shown various scenes from his life in a snapshot-style assemblage.
