Manchester Orchestra is gearing up to embark on a 40 city North American tour with their friends in Balance & Composure and Kevin Devine & the Goddamn Band. To help get fans pumped for the tour (not that you needed another reason to get pumped for this lineup), the bands have all released a free Tour Drop EP with some rarer and more popular tracks.
