Manchester Orchestra drop ‘The Alien’

After dropping a pretty damn cool teaser yesterday, Manchester Orchestra have unveiled a second track from their upcoming fifth studio album, ‘A Black Mile To The Surface’.

As they did with ‘The Gold’, the band posted a phone number for the UK, US and Australia on their social media pages which most curious fans would ring – each keypad number from 0 to 9 containing an eerie soundbite with one revealing a date. This time the message was “6222017 The Alien” and lo and behold, today ‘The Alien’ is now on the various streaming platforms.

You can check out ‘The Alien’ below!

22nd October – Glasgow
