Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness Announces Fall Tour


While news broke yesterday (June 22) that there is a possibility that Jack’s Mannequin will reunite to go on tour to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their breakout record, Everything in Transit, frontman Andrew McMahon revealed today that he will be going back on tour this Fall with his new group, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness.

While this is probably not the kind of tour announcement Jack’s fans were hoping for, it’s still McMahon going on tour and last time we saw them, they performed “Dark Blue,” from EIT, so something is definitely something.

McMahon will be hitting the road with Denmark’s New Politics whose new album, Vikings is set to be released in August. Also hitting the road with the two groups are Australian four-piece, The Griswolds. For those going to see The Griswolds, pay close attention to the tour schedule below because there are a few tour stops they will not be playing.

The tour is slated to begin on Oct. 13 at the Sodo Showbox in Seattle and wrap up a month and a half later on Nov. 28 at the Fillmore in Philadelphia.There are currently five “announcing soon” spots on the tour schedule, so if your town is not on the list, then maybe it will be coming soon.

Florence Welch Breaks Foot at Coachella

How do you know that you’ve put on a hell of show for a sea of loyal fans? When two days later you find out you have a broken foot and that’s exactly what happened to Florence and the Machine’s frontwoman, Florence Welch.

Yesterday afternoon, the songstress took to the internet to reveal to fans that she had sustained a broken foot during the closing night of the first weekend of Coachella. During the band’s performance, Welch had jumped off the stage and apparently things didn’t go as planned which resulted in her busted foot.

But for those wondering how the injury will affect her upcoming tour schedule, including another round at Coachella, she reassured that she’ll still be performing, though a little restraint.

“Unfortunately while this heals, my performances will have to be somewhat stripped back. I’m so sorry, I’m pretty devastated, but I still want to do the shows. I understand this is not what you were expecting, but I hope it’s just as enjoyable.I’m going to try and make it super special for you.”

On the upside, she said she’s hoping to be back on her feet (pun intended) by the time the band is scheduled to play Glastonbury at the end of June.

For now, check out the band’s tour schedule which picks up tonight at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles.
