Manchester Orchestra yesterday announced their first full-band shows in over a year and today shared the heavy, slow-burning new song “Never Ending,” their contribution to the Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack, executive produced by Tyler Bates (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Watchmen,” “John Wick”). “When Tyler reached out about wanting to include us in the soundtrack for this epic comic, this song immediately came to mind,” explains Andy Hull, who also voiced the character of Lex Luthor in “Sonic Metalverse,” the animated showcase for DC Comics’ Dark Nights: Death Metal series. “We spent some time with him adding flourishes to the original version and we were really thrilled with how well it turned out.” The Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack will be out digitally on June 18th via Loma Vista Recordings (physical LPs out July 16th) and is available for preorder (hi-res images/artwork for Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack available HERE).
The Atlanta-based band’s upcoming shows include a grand return to New York City playing the historic Hammerstein Ballroom on October 21st, their 11-year strong hometown Thanksgiving celebration The Stuffing at the Fox Theatre on November 19th, and their first announced show of 2022 at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium on February 26th. Tickets go on sale to the public this Thursday, June 10th, HERE (see below for initial routing). Manchester Orchestra recently released “Bed Head (Acoustic),” a stunning, stripped-back rendition of their sweeping, AAA radio Top 5 and Alternative radio Top 25 song from the band’s critically acclaimed new album The Million Masks of God (Loma Vista Recordings).
