Manchester Orchestra’s Cope Tour – Austin, Texas Setlist and Photos


Andy Hull

Manchester Orchestra is currently on tour to support their fourth studio album, Cope, which is described by lead singer Andy Hull as being ‘brutal’, ‘pounding’,  and ‘unapologetically heavy’. That was a fair summation of their April 22nd show at Emo’s, which started strong and wrapped up perfectly.


Opening acts were Kevin Devine and Balance and Composure.
