Right Away, Great Captain! is the solo side project of Manchester Orchestra's lead singer, Andy Hull. Debut album The Bitter End was released on January 14, 2007 via Favorite Gentlemen Recordings and is available on the band's MySpace. The follow-up, The Eventually Home, was released on Tuesday November 11, 2008, also on Hull's label Favorite Gentlemen Recordings. On Wednesday, February 10, 2010, he announced the third and final installment of his solo project's trilogy, The Church of the Good Thief, which was released in 2012.
The trilogy tells the ongoing saga of a 17th-century sailor who catches his wife in an act of betrayal with his very own brother.
Also, doing a few dates with both supporting his own band Manchester Orchestra and Kevin Devine in 2008 and 2009, Hull did his biggest shows under this project as a support act for his supergroup Bad Books which toured in October 2010, in support of their self-titled debut album. On March 26, 2011, Hull announced via Twitter that the next RAGC record would be entitled "The Church of the Good Thief," and will be a double album. On July 10, 2011, a song from the new album "The Church of the Good Thief," was released on Andy's Tumblr entitled "Blame". On May 8, 2012 the track listing and cover art for "The Church of the Good Thief," was released on PropertyOfZack.com as well as the final version of "Blame".
The Bitter End, The Eventually Home, The Church of the Good Thief and The Lost Sea are all available for download on the bands bandcamp profile.
