Manchester Orchestra side project is go!

Crossfire favourites Manchester Orchestra have spawned a new musical permutation in the form of guitarist Robert McDowell’s Gobotron.

His debut album On Your Mark, Get Set… will be released digitally on Favorite Gentlemen Recordings on 19th January.

The album began as somewhat of a secret during time off from Robert’s dayjob of Manchester Orchestra. He started playing around with a few ideas on his own, influenced by acts from the Beach Boys through to Ben Kweller, and didn’t really divulge information of what he was doing until it was actually done.
