Yesterday, Manchester Orchestra released a new song titled “Top Notch” and today, they followed it up by not only revealing they will be heading on a North American tour in the Spring, but that their new album will be titled Cope and will be released on April 1st. Hence the cryptic “4.1.14” that was posted on the band’s official Twitter page.

As for the upcoming tour, they have revealed that the tour will not only feature them, but also Balance & Composure and Kevin Devine. The tour is scheduled to begin in mid-April in Tampa and continue until the end of May with their last stop in Nashville.

“Cope, to me, means getting by. It means letting go, and being OK with being OK,” Manchester Orchestra frontman, Andy Hull, said in a press release. “You can cope in a positive way when bad things happen, or a negative way, and that blend was a big lyrical theme for me on this album.”

Tour dates and the audio for “Top Notch” can be viewed below.
