The Valley Of Vision is the follow up project to Manchester Orchestra's masterpiece, The Million Masks of God. These songs stemmed from Million Masks but the band switched things up creatively and holed themselves up in a home studio in Muscle Shoals. This is another excellent piece of work from the band which really showcases how they are becoming important record makers both through Andy Hull's song writing and their innovation of sound in the studio. Andy Hull says “Making this was an exciting idea of what the future could be for us in terms of how we create.”
Hull was inspired to start writing the record while rummaging around in his suitcase looking for his lyric notebook and instead found The Valley of Vision, a 1975 book of old Puritan prayers his mom had given to him the previous Christmas. “I realized it should be our title too, because to me, it meant you can’t see the forest for the trees, but you’re recognizing you’re in the valley, and you can eventually get out,” he says.
The Valley of Vision conjures up a story that is further illuminated by an accompanying visual piece shot in VR and 3D computed radiography technology by filmmaker Isaac Deitz.
