Bad Books’ III is finally here. Kevin, Robert and I have been working on this album for a long time. In fact, we were working on it before black mile was released. It’s been a really fun road. Massive but subtle adjustments have been made over the course of three years for a record we tried to keep sounding vast and limitless while using as much restraint and as little instrumentation as we could apply. It’s been a delight preparing with Kevin and rob for this upcoming tour. Placing songs from our first two records in a dreamy and atmospheric place. As for III... In the end I feel like I’m left with an album that’s full of space and full of words. Written and performed from three different guys trying to make sense of the same things. And often times, from completely different angles. I’m really proud of this 40 minute musical movement and I hope that you enjoy listening to it too. - Andy stream III now:

Manchester Orchestra Jun 13, 2019
Hey, it’s me again. Time for another round of “wow where did that box of random stuff come from?”. We found these IKHTS posters and decided they would be better hanging on your walls than collecting dust. So starting right now, if you purchase any vinyl on the MO merch store, we’re going to throw in one of these babies for FREE. We signed every last one, so please don’t let our possible carpal tunnel go to waste. Love you. MO

When Andy, Robert & I got together at their studio in April of 2017, it was ostensibly with the goal of writing & recording - or at least starting - one new Bad Books song. As often happens when we get in a room, things escalated. Andy & I each recorded live takes - solo performances, vocal & guitar - of 6 songs a piece we’d been working on. We workshopped some lyric & structure adjustments, sang some harmonies, and called it a weekend, generally agreeing to return to the material & see what we thought “next time,” whenever that may be, with the only rule being no listening to what was there between sessions. It turned out “next time” would be February 2018. There was clear excitement and palpable nerves when we opened up the files to listen back, and then real relief and proper giddiness when we liked & believed in what we heard as much as we did. It was from that foundation over a few more scattered sessions III was properly built. I often believe songs tell you the clothes they want to wear. With this group, which felt like they were already having some kind of intuitive conversation on which we were almost eavesdropping, it became immediately apparent those outfits should be spare, subtle, expansive, intimate, a little sparkly, and slightly lunar. Bad Books has always been built on songs, and on communicating. I think the songs on III communicate the most directly we ever have, and to a very real extent I’m including our other projects in that assessment as well. I’m beyond proud of the work we’ve done here & cannot wait for you to hear more, and to present it to you as a trio every night on the upcoming tour, and to run our prior songs - many of which really live there already - through that filter, as well. Thank you for riding along. See you out there. Xo KD Photo: Brian Manley

Manchester Orchestra Apr 16, 2019
Bad Books kind of started half an hour after we met one another. Our friendship was fast, and fixed, and we fit well: mutually omni-curious, preoccupied at different angles, hooked on the deep dive. Through hundreds of shows and hours in vans and cars and countless too-late-at-night conversations, a mutual respect and unique bond fortified, inevitably vining through our music. Collaboration and counsel on one another’s developing work became the suggestion that we should make some together; that eventually became our first record, which we each liked enough to let become our second band. We love how very real a concern Bad Books has become, how much it's grown with each record, how much of an event it is for us when we get to offer it the time & focus it deserves. There’s no greater compliment to either of us than when someone half-guiltily admits to preferring Bad Books to our day jobs - we really do understand. That’s why we’re so excited today to announce our first tour in six years, and to have so much more to tell you about very, very soon. We’ve missed it. And we can’t wait to show you what we’ve been up to. See you out there - thank you.
