Belle and Sebastian return to the Mann with Andrew Bird and special guests Porches on August 3rd.

Belle and Sebastian formed in Glasgow in 1996. They’ve sold over 3 million albums, releasing a dozen singles and playing countless sold‐out concerts around the world. The band has been recording new material in their native Glasgow, due to be revealed later in 2017 on Matador Records. In addition to selections from 2015’s Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance and the rest of the their iconic catalog, Belle & Sebastian fans can expect a taste of new music at this show.

Are You Serious is the second record Andrew Bird has made with producer Tony Berg, following 2005’s breakthrough The Mysterious Production of Eggs. «Tony and I spent months preparing for Sound City,» says Bird, referring to the legendary Los Angeles studio where Nirvana recorded Nevermind and Neil Young made After The Gold Rush. «We went through every part of every song, every note, scrutinizing the voicing of the chords, finding melodically interesting ways to move from one chord to the next. I decided to work with a producer because I wanted the recording process to be more rigorous. Novelists have editors and playwrights workshop their drama. Tony really played that role for me on this album.” The new album features guest appearances by Fiona Apple and Blake Mills.

Tickets are on sale now via MannCenter.org, Ticketmaster.com, 800-745-3000, the Mann Box Office or AEGLive.com.
