Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness

Posted by: Jason Tate (07/11/14)
Andrew McMahon's new project will go by Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness.
I’ve always thought of music as a mirror to the adventure of living. Over the last 14 years I have lived many lives and had the opportunity to play stages around the world in various incarnations. At times I’ve performed simply as Andrew McMahon but mostly as Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate. As I embark on yet another musical adventure, I will be traveling with my band to many of those same stages, this time as “Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness”. I suppose my wilderness is mostly an abstract one. Since putting Jack’s behind me, I have forced myself into strange spaces seeking new stimulus. New lights on the path to the high of a finished song. Since getting off tour last summer this pursuit intensified. From more than one Southern California garage, to a cabin set deep in Topanga Canyon, to a shoebox studio in the thick of the Hollywood tourist traps, the only constants have been my keyboard and a desire to make my best music. I’ve met amazing people in the process; people who have propped this mission up, adding a palate of sound and perspective. This new name carries with it the spirit of that collaboration. As my fans, you have seen me through many transitions. From a misunderstood pop band in a punk world, to a man in transit sent spinning through illness and recovery. We’ve seen each other through a lot. We met me in the pop underground, I hope to see you in the wilderness. More big news to come…stay tuned

I just want this to be super catchy and super piano centered.

Regardless of whether or not that happens, as long as it's good I don't care if he goes by Andrew McMahon and the Burlap Sacs.

If there's not an EIT tour next year, he better at least play it in full at the Dear Jack benefit and then release it on DVD

as long as it isn't that electro-pop crap he was posting the last year or two I don't care what his band name is.

i'm really into both of them, but high dive is really catchy. about the album he said,
"There’s virtually no guitars on the entire record. We made the conscious choice to leave them off in an effort to make more space for the vocals and piano. The synth elements are lusher — almost orchestral, with string and horn patches — rather than letting the synths take over the melodies."
