Everything Everything are set to stage an artist residency at Manchester Central Library.

The band will host the Chaos To Order event at the newly re-opened venue, bringing in a host of other artists and creatives for a week of "events and experiments which will challenge perceptions of libraries" according to a press release.

In a statement, the band said: "We have long been attracted to chaos. Documenting the overload of information in which we live – its overwhelming vastness, its beauties and its dangers – has been central to our work. We are also attracted to the egalitarianism of the public library as an institution. Anyone can enter and indulge any interest. We want to curate a residency that will reflect and explore this."

The band – who are from Manchester – will be working with the Brighter Sound organisation on the project and it will be taking place as part of the Library Live series of events.

Everything Everything are currently working on their third album, the follow-up to 2013's 'Arc'. Speaking to NME earlier this year, Everything Everything frontman Jonathan Higgs said of the album: "We want to be more instinctive, do it straight from the top of our domes." He added that touring Europe with Foals inspired some of the band's new material after Yannis Philippakis of the Oxford band played Higgs a collection of old prison recordings.

Higgs said of the singer's input: "The penny dropped: I thought, 'what more do I need?' Nearly all the new songs are just drums and vocals."
