Manchester Orchestra and Favorite Gentlemen are proud to present “My Friend Marcus” on Alternative Press.
This cinematic flashback examines life from the perspective of a young child. Through a series of iconic clips, we witness the carefree times of growth and the special bond between father and son. These are the times that define a “normal” American childhood idealized by many.
The full-album series concept was conceived by the Emmy Award winning directing team of Clay Lipsky and Jason Bognacki of Destroy Rock Music Inc., whom also directed “I Can Barely Breathe” from the band’s debut I’m Like a Virgin Losing a Child.
Lipsky notes that the vision behind the videos are to “create a cinematic collage of decaying film and lost memories intertwined with a loose narrative about a young woman on a surreal journey to find what she is missing.” The videos to follow will continue to discover the many layers hiding within the new record.
