Manchester Orchestra and The Front Bottoms have shared a new collaborative track, “Allentown”.
Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull detailed the track’s genesis, explaining, “This song started as a writing exercise between Nate Hussey (All Get Out) and myself. Nate sent me the first four lines and asked what kind of music and melody I heard. I sent him back the melody and we started crafting out this character with as few words as possible. When I sent it to TFB, Brian wrote the cool narrator perspective as our chorus. TFB crew came down to Atlanta and we co-produced the track and gave it some proper clothing.”
The Front Bottoms’ Brian Sella added, “TFB have been friends with Andy and the Manchester crew for quite some time. It felt good to finally get in the studio with them. The track really came out great, and we had a blast recording it. We hope you enjoy it.”
Manchester Orchestra and The Front Bottoms are currently out on a U.S. co-headline tour which kicked off earlier this month in Atlanta, GA at The Stuffing - Manchester Orchestra’s annual Thanksgiving celebration.
