Additionally, Manchester Orchestra will also perform on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” October 31st, in support of their critically acclaimed debut album I’M LIKE A VIRGIN LOSING A CHILD. Director Sam Erickson offers fans an intimate look into the personalities of Manchester Orchestra and more specifically, the mind of principle songwriter / lyricist Andy Hull, in his new documentary, WHAT’S LEFT BEHIND. Filmed and directed by Sam Erickson (My Morning Jacket’s “Okonokos” and Dave Matthews “Live at Radio City”), WHAT’S LEFT BEHIND, like the band’s album, explores themes of religion and death, but also highlights the close bond forged between band members and emphasizes the importance of family and friends. WHAT’S LEFT BEHIND follows the band for one week through Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas while on tour, and plans for release of the film are still being determined.

Since the release of I’M LIKE A VIRGIN LOSING A CHILD, the band have appeared on the “Late Show With David Letterman,” and have performed at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Austin City Limits, Reading and Leads Festival. The band is currently on a North American tour with the Kings of Leon & BRMC and will spend December in the UK on a Kings of Leon arena tour.

In addition to Rolling Stone, Spin, MTV News, Paste, Alternative Press and many others, The New York Times recently raved I’M LIKE A VIRGIN LOSING A CHILD “is one of this year’s best … in it you can hear the influence of R.E.M. and a generation of indie rockers … there’s something pleasantly inscrutable about Mr. Hull, whether he’s delivering a spiteful rant or serenading someone … This is a fundamentally immodest album: music to swoon to.” At the conclusion of the band’s performance on the “Late Show With David Letterman,” Letterman himself exclaimed, “That’s exactly what we’re looking for!”
