Andrew McMahon of Jack’s Mannequin will be hitting the road for a solo tour, just him and a piano, this October. The tour will raise awareness about his deeply personal documentary Dear Jack which chronicles the year that Andrew, then 22, spent battling leukemia while trying to release Jack’s Mannequin’s 2005 debut album Everything in Transit. Andrew has been in remission since receiving a stem-cell transplant from his sister. Sire Records will release Dear Jack this Fall.
The latest single “Swim” from Jack’s Mannequin will be featured in commercials for CBS’s new show Three Rivers. Check out the spots here.
