    All Get Out will be releasing Nobody Likes a Quitter this fall. The album was co-written and produced by Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull and Robert McDowell.


    “Where I’ve been is irrelevant,” Nathan Hussey sings on “Room To Talk,” the first song from All Get Out’s second-full length album, Nobody Likes A Quitter – and he’s got a point: It’s been a long five years since his Texas-by-the-way-of-South-Carolina indie-rock band released their now-cult classic The Season in 2011, but the details of how Hussey got from then to now are less important than the fact that Nobody Likes A Quitter even exists. (For those keeping score, it involved stints working on a farm and in a coffee shop—”nothing very fulfilling.”)
    “I eventually realized I had nothing else but music,” he says.

    Produced by and co-written with Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull and Robert McDowell over the course of a year, Nobody Likes A Quitter (released through Manchester Orchestra’s Favorite Gentlemen label along with Bad Timing Records) is a more nuanced and restrained affair than the palpable aggression of The Season and 2015’s Movement EP—but it’s no less vulnerable or emotionally exhausting. That visceral angst has been replaced with introspection, as Hussey has learned to channel the passion that permeated his last two releases and articulate it more eloquently.

    “I couldn’t write like a 21-year-old,” he says. “When I started writing this record, I was 29. I had to accept a few things: I had to accept what the record was sonically. This is where I am. I sound a little softer: I don’t have angst; I have worry. I’m not angry at other people; I’m concerned with myself. Andy really held me accountable to the meaning of the songs. We’d go over lyrics and he’d ask me, ‘What are you trying to say? This is what it sounds like to me.’”

    That soul-searching takes many forms over the album’s 10 songs, whether Hussey is reaching into his past to address personal relationships—many of which take the shape of former All Get Out band members (“Get My Cut”)—or trying to wrap his head around universal themes like ego, guilt, doubt and self-fulfillment (“Home”). At its core, Nobody Likes A Quitter is about coming to terms with yourself and who you are, about realizing that even though you might not measure up to your idealized self, your faults and flaws are ultimately what make you human.

    “I’m finally becoming aware of who I am,” he says. “There’s a sense of disappointment that comes when you figure out who you are in a way. You find out what you’re made of. It’s like the first time your fight-or-flight reflex is tested, and it turns out you’re a flight. Instead of going, ‘Oh no, I’m a flight,’ it’s ‘Hey, I’m a flight. It’s who I am.’ It’s also learning that ‘I don’t know’ is sometimes a completely reasonable answer.”

    What Hussey does know is he never wants to wait half a decade between releases ever again. Now experiencing a period of prolific creativity unlike ever before, his attention is squarely turned toward the future of All Get Out. It took him a while to revisit the project, but sometimes you have to detour through life before returning to things that are truly important.

    “You give up a lot to do this: plans and time and commitments,” he says. “There’s definitely a sacrifice you make, especially as you get older and watch other people’s lives happen—but I know it’s good. I know the records we have are good. I know people like the band. It’s something with integrity to it, so I know it’s not worth letting go.”

    Love this band and I loved their Movement EP. I am assuming they are still on Favorite Gentleman then?

    I'll see you again in 25 years Prestigious

    Beyond excited. So happy for their success. Saw them play at a coffeehouse in front of about 10 people back in 2008, and they were great guys and played their asses off despite the size of the crowd

    So excited for this one!
  12. Saephon


    I always thought of them as a more silly/poppy Manchester. So incredibly stoked that Andy has a big hand in the new record. Hype levels off the charts.

    The Season remains one of my three or four favorite albums of the entire 2000s.

    Manchester Orchestra is a desert island/Mount Rushmore band for me.

    My favorite show of all time is a toss up between seeing the Season in its entirety in a tiny little bar with 30 people and both times I saw ManOrch play 90 minutes absolutely flawlessly.

    I truly cannot put into words the excitement level I have for an All Get Out sophomore record. Co-written by Andy Motherfucking Hull!? I don't even have sounds.

    hopelessly yours, Alabama

    I know I'm not the first person to quote you, but there isn't a damn thing silly about AGO. If anything they are heavier than Manchester. Songs like "Burn Hot the Records", "Girl, Gun", and "The Season" absolutely slay. Not to mention what an amazing songwriter Nate is in his own right. I totally understand the MO comparisons that they will probably never be able to escape, but AGO will always be first in my heart.

    Yeah seeing both of these bands was huge for me. Can't wait for this.

    Maybe you're thinking of the band Microwave? They would fit that description more than All Get Out.

    There's no way this will be bad.

    This band popped into my head the other day for the first time in a long, long time. I was wondering what happened to them. I'm hoping the new material is excellent.
  25. CMilliken


    Yeah, I don't understand this either.
