Holy Shit: The Front Bottoms and Manchester Orchestra Made A Beautiful New Song Together

To help celebrate their currently on-going co-headlining tour together, indie powerhouses Manchester Orchestra and The Front Bottoms have teamed up to release a brand new beautifully calm single titled “Allentown.”

Explaining how the soothing keyboard-led collaboration came together, Manchester Orchestra vocalist/guitarist explained that it all originally began with help from All Get Out frontman Nate Hussey.     

“Nate sent me the first four lines and asked what kind of music and melody I heard,” said Hull. “I sent him back the melody and we started crafting out this character with as few words as possible. When I sent it to The Front Bottoms, Brian [Sella, vocals/guitar] wrote the cool narrator perspective as our chorus. The Front Bottoms crew came down to Atlanta and we co-produced the track and gave it some proper clothing.”
