Manchester Orchestra lose bassist
2013-02-11 by Kris. | 37 Comments

Manchester Orchestra have announced that they've amicably parted ways with longtime
bassist Jonathan Corley. Corley had been bassist for the band since their inception, 9
years ago.

From Manchester Orchestra's Facebook:


Quote:
Another time for change has come in the life of Manchester Orchestra. Our dear
friend and bassist Jonathan Corley has made the decision to part ways with the band and
pursue another career outside of playing music. This was a very obviously a very difficult
decision but J is our eternal brother and we wish him the absolute best. There is no doubt
that he will find success in any area he pursues. He will remain a part of the Manchester
Orchestra family forever and there is no way we can thank him enough for the time he has
spent with us over the last 9 years.

Please see below for a message from J.

MO

"After much thought and consideration, I've made the decision to end my career with
Manchester Orchestra. The past nine years have been an incredible journey and this was
absolutely one of the most difficult decisions I've made. I am very proud of what we
accomplished together and cannot wait to see where the band goes from here. I'm grateful
for the opportunities I've had to work and tour with a wide range of talented and
supportive people and I will carry these experiences with me for the rest of my life. I
would sincerely like to thank all of the fans, friends, family, and bands that have
offered overwhelming support throughout the years. I am very excited to begin the next
chapter of life. Thank you for the wonderful years and experiences."

That was sad to read but there seems to be a lot of confidence in his decision by both the band and
him so this is actually good news

"Not even in Virgin? D: "
Well I mean yeah it's there, but it wasn't the main draw, like enough for me to say "omg dat bass" or
anything. even if it was prominent like in the intro of Virgin, it wasn't like "damn listen to the
bass go"

Damn, looks like Andy Hull is now the only original member... The band started as a 3 piece and the first drummer left like a year or two ago. The other guitarist and keyboardist joined the band a little later so that would make Andy Hull the only one who's been in the band the whole time.

Theyre working on a new album. Andy Hull described the songs as fresh and angry or something to the effect. He did use the word angry though and my favorite song of theirs is Shake It Out, so I'm pumped for sure

and he's a big boy, they'll be able to keep one eye on him I'm sure

He's probably just outside going through the garbage. That's what my dog did when I forgot to close the door.
