Andy Hull is preparing to release the third and final album in his Right Away, Great Captain! saga this spring. The solo project from the frontman of Manchester Orchestra eschews the bombast of his band, emphasizing instead Hull’s more delicate singer/songwriter side as he tells the tormented tale of a sailor who, upon catching his wife in bed with his brother, takes to the sea for years before returning home and bringing the story to its horrible, inevitable conclusion.

Hull explains more about the background and story of Right Away, Great Captain! in this interview with Property Of Zack:

The new album will be released digitally, and Hull is also planning to issue a limited-edition vinyl collection of all three Right Away, Great Captain! albums.

HM contributor Andrew Voigt recently sat down with Justine Jones to learn more about the band, marrying your bandmates, and their outside shot at touring with Rammstein.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
