Manchester Orchestra Release Documentary and 'Black Mile Demos' EP

Friday, 29 June 2018 Written by Helen Payne

Manchester Orchestra have released a new documentary.

I Know How To Speak offers a look into the making of their 2017 album 'A Black Mile To The Surface'. The Ted Roach-directed film shares its name with the Atlanta band's latest single and is accompanied by the release of 'The Black Mile Demos' EP.

Singer and guitarist Andy Hull said of the announcement:

"Today we are releasing two projects at once, something that we have never done before. First, a fly on the wall glimpse of the process of making this album -- the good and the bad, the ups and the downs. I Know How to Speak encompasses the wide range of emotions that the studio process brings, and we hope you enjoy seeing the work behind the scenes. We are also releasing a collection of these songs’ original demos in their earliest, rawest form. The Black Mile Demos are the seeds of how this all started. The initial, rough-around-the edges recordings, done with one microphone in some distant and often strange locations before they were continued to be worked on in Asheville, NC at Echo Mountain studio.”

I Know How To Speak is available to watch through the band's website, while you can check out the the new EP below.

It can sometimes be difficult for an artist to capture the zeitgeist. Even if they know what to say, they often struggle to find the right way to say it. Not so for Matt Healy and his 1975, who haven’t just captured the zeitgeist—they’ve wrestled it into submission, stuffed it in a cage and made it perform tricks for our amusement.
