Manchester Orchestra Share One-Shot Video For “Telepath”

Manchester Orchestra today released “Telepath,” the third and final single from their forthcoming new album, The Million Masks of God, out this Friday, April 30th (Loma Vista Recordings). The song’s stunning video—directed by Isaac Deitz, conceptualized singer/guitarist Andy Hull, and filmed in one long tracking shot—features dancers from ages 11 to 72 that trace the steps of a couple from young love through their autumn years. “‘Telepath’ is ultimately about the ebb and flow of life long commitment to another person. Recognizing that even the best relationships in our lives can have extreme ups and downs,” explains Hull. “At the end of the day, it’s those that we have chosen to love and, more importantly, those that have chosen to love us that truly matter. This is my attempt to further commit for the long haul.” “Telepath” follows both “Keel Timing” and lead single “Bed Head,” the latter of which just broke into the Top 10 at Triple A radio and the Top 30 Mediabase and BDS Alternative charts, while topping SiriusXM Alt Nation’s ‘Alt 18 Countdown’ chart at #1 for a third week.

To mark the new album’s release, Manchester Orchestra also announced Transmissions from Echo Mountain: A Countdown to The Million Masks of God, a 12-hour event broadcast from the Asheville, NC, studio where it was made. The band will check in hourly via their YouTube channel to uniquely reveal Masks, interacting with fans as they share exclusive content and performances, behind-the-scenes access, and more. Fans can tune in here on Thursday beginning 9am PDT/12pm EDT to watch.
