Andy Hull of and Robert McDowell of Manchester Orchestra dropped by the TMD studios to play some songs from their upcoming album, A Black Mile To The Surface,” and an older favorite. They talk to Matt Galler about the inspiration behind the songs, and how they had to essentially force themselves to get away from their families, and as they say, become “selfish” in order to create new music together. They also explain how the opportunity came along to compose the entire score to the film “Swiss Army Man.” Hear the in-studio session below.

A Black Mile to the Surface is out July 28th on Loma Vista.
