To co-incide with their upcoming appearance on Soundwave Festival, Jack’s Mannequin, will have their latest album ‘People and Things‘, released locally for the first time on February 10th via Warner Music. It was released in the US last October via Sire. Packed full of McMahon’s trademark piano-led pop-rock tunes, the first single from the album, ‘My Racing Thoughts‘ can be heard below. According to Andrew McMahon, the album can be viewed as the final installment to a three-part story. If the 29-year-old’s debut, ‘Everything in Transit‘, was his break-up record, and 2008’s ‘The Glass Passenger‘ was a snapshot of his battle with leukemia, ‘People and Things‘ could be referred to as “the return home” he says. As well as Soundwave, the band will also be performing side shows with Dashboard Confessional and Relient K in Sydney (27th Feb – Manning Bar) and Melbourne (29th Feb – Prince Of Wales).
