Manchester Orchestra has announced a new album called The Valley of Vision.

The follow-up to 2021’s The Million Masks of God will arrive digitally on March 10 and on physical formats on April 7. In conjunction with its digital release, Manchester Orchestra will premiere a virtual reality film, also titled The Valley of Vision, on March 9 via their YouTube channel.

“Making The Valley of Vision was an exciting idea of what the future could be for us in terms of how we create,” says frontman Andy Hull. “None of these songs were written with the band being in the same room in a live setting. They were really like science experiments that started from the bottom and were added to gradually over time.”

Hull adds, “We’re intrigued by doing things the wrong way, or attempting things we haven’t done before and getting inspired by them.”

Ahead of The Valley of Vision‘s arrival, you can listen to the song “Capital Karma” now via digital outlets.
