How could Manchester Orchestra get any better? By adding Kevin Devine to their line-up, of course. Well, Mr. Devine hasn’t joined the band as a permanent member, but rather teamed up with Hull and co. to form a new project: Bad Books. Bad books sounds pretty much like you would expect them to. Think the louder side of Kevin’s catalog mixed with a hint of folk and the Southern-tinged, minimalist rock of the Orchestra. It’s safe to say that if you like either of the sides in this project, you’re going to enjoy Bad Books. The band’s only released two songs so far: “You Wouldn’t Have to Ask” (below) and “Please Move,” which you can find on their Facebook page. Their self-titled full-length is due out October 19th on Favorite Gentlemen Records.
