Indie rock “super group” Bad Books will be releasing their sophomore album, Bad Books II, on October 9. The group also announced that they have signed to Triple Crown Records. Check out the album art for Bad Books II at the bottom of this post.
Bad Books is comprised of the entirety of alternative rock outfit Manchester Orchestra and indie folk artist Kevin Devine. The group came together in 2010 following a tour stint between the two entities. They released their self-titled debut in the Fall of 2010 via Favorite Gentleman Records (the label of Manchester Orchestra’s lead singer, Andy Hull).
Since the release of Bad Books in 2010, Kevin Devine released his sixth album, Between the Concrete and Clouds (2011) and Manchester Orchestra released their third album, Simple Math (2011). Andy Hull also released the third and final installment of his side-project Right Away, Great Captain!, The Church of the Good Thief, earlier this year.
Here is the art work for Bad Books II. Be sure to grab a copy of the album when it drops on October 9.
