Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 5th through mercylounge.com and AEGlive.com for the October 18th Jack’s Mannequin show at The Cannery Ballroom. A lot has happened since the 2005 release of Everything In Transit which went to #37 on Billboard.

Andrew McMahon recently stated on AbsolutePunk.net, “In the time following the last Jack’s album the people in my world were moving in together, getting married, trying to find quote unquote ‘real jobs’ and reconciling new lives that looked a lot less like youth than some of us cared for.”

Jack’s Mannequin will release the long awaited follow up People and Things on October 4th. The first single is being released Friday and deals with serious relationships straight up.

“ Marriage is a bit of a beast to tackle in a pop record but when I wrote “My Racing Thoughts,” it became clear how powerful and loaded a subject this kind of love is and somewhere in that moment I began to lock into the broad concept for the writing sessions to come.”

The band, which started in Orange County, California, began as a side project for Andrew McMahon, former frontman for the band Something Corporate. In 2005, McMahon was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), just months before the release of Jack’s Mannequin’s debut studio album.

Motion City Soundtrack and Company of Thieves will serve as support for the show.
