In an interview with Billboard, Andrew McMahon hinted that one of his old bands, Jack’s Mannequin, may reunite for a 10 year anniversary tour of their debut album, “Everything in Transit.”
McMahon originally started Jack’s Mannequin in 2004 as a solo side project apart from his full-time job as the lead vocalist for Something Corporate. Later in the year, Something Corporate went on hiatus and McMahon expanded Jack’s Mannequin to a full band. A year later, “Everything in Transit” was released, peaking at No. 37 on the Billboard charts.
The tour would like occur in late 2015 or in 2016, according to Billboard.
Jack’s Mannequin dissolved in 2012 after McMahon decided to retire name, opting instead to release work under his own name. Last year, McMahon released the self-titled album of his newest project, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness.
With Jack’s Mannequin, McMahon went through one of the hardest times in his life. The band had to cancel the promotional tour of “Everything in Transit” after McMahon was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Due to the fact that doctors were able to diagnose McMahon early as well as a stem cell donation from his sister, McMahon was able to make a full recovery.
Since his diagnosis, McMahon founded the Dear Jack Foundation to raise funds for cancer research. Last year, McMahon announced that the Dear Jack Foundation had raised more than $500,000 since it’s inception.
