Manchester Orchestra are releasing their new album A Black Mile to the Surface in July and touring after, including a big NYC show at Terminal 5 in September (tickets). Last night (6/28), though, the band came to NYC for an intimate, last-minute show at Mercury Lounge, the same place they played their very first NYC show in 2007.

They played the new album's lead single "The Gold," and two more not-yet-released songs from the album, "The Alien" and "The Parts," the latter of which was played with just strings and no percussion. They also played some older favorites like "I Can Barely Breathe," "Where Have You Been?," "Shake It Out," "Pride," and more. Full setlist and a couple video clips below. Pictures from the show are in the gallery above.
