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...

Hmmm ... if Andrew McMahon is hinting at what I think he's hinting at, I am super jealous.
We've got a special treat to help San Fran get ready for summer. Hint..."This is a story"

Jack's Mannequin's Everything in Transit turned nine yesterday.

Update: Just kidding, I mean in August it will be nine. When I first googled the date to double-check it was wrong. Still a great fucking record so I'll leave this thread open to discuss the greatness that is this album. Appreciation thread commence.

The Hollywood Reporter has an article on Andrew McMahon (Jack's Mannequin, Something Corporate) where he discusses his upcoming album and his work with the cancelled TV series, Smash, and his subsequent Emmy nomination.
"I won't lie, it's not a fear-based pressure, because I'm really excited and I'm really content in the work that I'm doing right now," he continues. "But there is a sense for me right now that I have to make this next thing my calling card. It's going to be my first full-length under my name, and I want it to be my best record. I'm pretty hell-bent on it being so."

Andrew McMahon has posted a blog update on the release of his new album.
It is not lost on me that tonight is exceptional. Exceptional for many reasons. Exceptional because I am at peace. Exceptional because on evenings such as this, in other lives, I was a mess. I have spent many nights in terminals like this one; waiting on a trains or planes, dreaming of final destinations. Tonight is different though. A broad leather chair with wooden arms, one of many in LA’s union station, holds me close as I type these words. I am eager for the tracks and my wife on the other side, but I am glad to be here for now, if only for a moment.

Andrew McMahon wrote an entry for Huffington Post on his new found 30-somethings.
From the BlogBy the title of this piece you might assume it is a cynical rant about the dissolution of the modern music business and my place in it. Fear not, it is anything but. I am living proof that even in its state of disrepair, the ability for a unique voice to be heard in this business still exists. If you are reading this you probably fall in one of three categories: a fan who followed a link from one of my web portals; a curious onlooker who vaguely recognizes the name on the byline, but is not quite sure why; or you are scratching your head altogether as to who I am and why the Huffington Post...

From AndrewI have been well aware, throughout my career, how rare it is for a musician to have such a genuine connection with the people who support them. The reaction to the final JM shows have certainly crystalized those realizations. There is little I could do to express my gratitude for this, but if anything, this is a small token. Late one night in Santa Monica I played my friend and long time producer, Jim Wirt, a demo of a song I wrote a few years back. No session was scheduled, but after a couple beers and some laughs we pulled out some microphones and cut it. The next day Jay and Bobby came...

Jack's Mannequin is adding another "final show" for their Dear Jack Benefit. Details coming soon.
From the BlogThe 3rd annual DJF benefit has become the fastest selling show of my career. I cannot thank you all enough for your support of Jack’s Mannequin, but also for your commitment to a cause that in many ways has defined the music we have made over the last 7 years. I am humbled, honored and oh so blessed to be on the receiving end of such love. While we had not originally planned to do more than one date, it is with great pleasure that I announce plans to add an additional show so that more of us can share in what will no doubt be an incredible night. Stay tuned for details....

Andrew's PostTwo Advil pm and 3 ounces of bullet rye later it occurs to me I have something to say. To the wall, to myself, to anyone who will listen. I enjoy operating in this space, late at night when the questions become riddles and the present tense becomes the past, shoring up hope at morning’s edge. As indicated by the page these words appear on and the mere existence of the words themselves, I am once again in transition. The truth is I am always so, and while for me it seems less like news and possibly for you too, I wish to clear what is left of the summer air. In...
