If you've been reading SKOA for a while you may know that I am personally a huge Manchester Orchestra fan. A few years ago I was pleasantly surprised to hear Andy Hull had teamed up with Kevin Devine for a side project titled Bad Books. The band is rounded out with the other members of Manchester Orchestra and the result was a melting pot of creativity and influence, and I thoroughly enjoy album one.
They are now set to release album number two simply call, II. It will be released next week on October 9th but you can stream the second album right now via CoS below. The album has a variety of styles and isn't pigeon holed to the style we saw them undertake in "Forest Whitaker" in early August.
