Introducing Bad Books
As some of you may have already heard, there is a new Manchester Orchestra project! BAD BOOKS is a collaboration between Manchester Orchestra and Kevin Devine.

A true accident if there ever was one; Bad Books was never an intended nor calculated side project of Kevin Devine and Andy Hull. Though the two musicians have collaborated and performed together on tour and within the Favorite Gentlemen community of artists for years now, the genesis of Bad Books came from a simple idea to fill space and time off the road by collaborating on a small batch of songs together at the top of the year. With no agenda and no expectations, what was birthed just one week later was Bad Books, a fully realized album encompassing five compositions each from both Devine and Hull, with the members of Manchester Orchestra filling out the sound and the band.

Engineered by Robert McDowell with help from drummer Ben Homola, and mixed by Chris Bracco (of Devine’s ‘Goddamn Band’), Bad Books progressed in the most organic and natural way possible. Free from any boundaries or restrictions, Devine and Hull were able to craft a beautiful body of melodies, highlighting arcs of high and low throughout, and utilizing the stark imagery and storytelling for which both of them are known. “There was no governing framework,” Devine says: “No, ‘let’s write these kind of songs and say these kind of things’. We just wrote, arranged and played each song to its end, followed where it led, and I think it brought us both to some pretty unexpected places.”

The self-titled debut will be released October 19th, 2010 via Favorite Gentlemen. Check www.badbooksmusic.com for more info and for tour dates.
