Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, the latest project from Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin mastermind Andrew McMahon, has a big 2017 on tap.
On February 20, McMahon will release Zombies on Broadway, the second full-length album under this moniker. It’s the follow-up to 2014’s self-titled debut, which was led by the hit single “Cecilia and the Satellite.”
In advance of the new album, McMahon premiered the single “Fire Escape” back in September and, more recently, “Brooklyn, You’re Killing Me:”
McMahon characterized the new material with a message:
I wrote this album in the middle of a whirlwind, when the future was unclear. Isn’t it always? I found my way to the city, thinking I could settle a score with a ghost. You can’t, so I came home and rewrote the ending. I’m proud announce my new album, “Zombies on Broadway,” is coming on February 10th. I spent more than a year hoping to find new answers to old questions. What I found; I have always been two people; One in search of peace and the other in search of whatever makes my hair stand up and my heart beat faster. This record is mostly about the latter.
He and his band will head out on the road in 2017 with special guests Atlas Genius and Night Riots and, in typically emotive fashion, McMahon promises some special visuals on the road:
In hopes of convincing you further, we’re going to bring out a really inventive production. Life’s too short not to blow off some confetti and wear reflective clothing, or something like that. It’ll be fun, so see below for details and get ready for a good time.
McMahon has had a lengthy, shape-shifting career spanning genres, styles and sounds but one thing has been consistent throughout: his passion. This album should be no different, based on what he’s said and released thus far.
