J-14 is scouting out the hottest bands around... and this week's pick is Jack's Mannequin.
Here are five things you need to know about Jack's Mannequin, whose third album People and Things is out now!
1. From what started out as a side project created by Something Corporate's Andrew McMahon, Jack's Mannequin has turned in to a journey for vocalist and pianist Andrew and fellow members guitarist Bobby Anderson, drummer Jay McMillan, and bassist Mikey Wagner. "Something Corporate had done two full length records and an EP and toured pretty constantly for three, four years straight so I think in that moment it was myself and Josh, our guitar player -- we kind of decided to take a little hiatus and go and work on some other things while we were on those breaks," Andrew tells J-14. "So Jack's is what came out of it. Obviously it evolved and developed from there but that's how it began."
