Manchester Orchestra will release their new album, Simple Math, on May 10, 2011. It is the follow-up to Mean Everything to Nothing which was released in 2009. Frontman Andy Hull promises a concept record about a 23-year old who questions everything from marriage to love to religion to sex:
This record is two duelling conversations between me and my wife, and me and my God. Sometimes even for myself, it's difficult to decipher which one I'm actually talking to. Everything I've written in the past has been about those things. This album is the most realized form of my questioning.
