Album Update: “Zombies On Broadway” By Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness

Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness is an alternative music group that formed in 2014. The lead singer, Andrew McMahon, was previously the frontman of Jack’s Mannequin. This is Andrew McMahon’s second full length album released solo. On Feb. 10, 2017, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness released Zombies On Broadway via. Vanguard Records.

Here is their track list:

  1. Zombies Intro
  2. Brooklyn, You’re Killing Me
  3. So Close
  4. Don’t Speak for Me (True)
  5. Fire Escape
  6. Dead Man’s Dollar
  7. Shot Out Of a Cannon
  8. Walking In My Sleep
  9. Island Radio
  10. Love and Great Buildings
  11. Birthday Song

There were five singles released, “Fire Escape,” “Brooklyn, You’re Killing Me,” “Walking in My Sleep,” “Don’t Speak To Me (True),” and “So Close.” This album is more pop than rock, but overall I enjoyed the album. I like the fact Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness has a pop and whimsical vibe that allows a listener to dance around singing their lyrics. I saw Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness open for Panic! At The Disco and Weezer in June of 2016, and I was pleasantly surprised on how great Andrew McMahon was live. He was very whimsical and his vocals were top notch. If you haven’t heard any of the songs off of Zombies On Broadway, I recommend you should.

The tour travels across the United States and Canada. The tour begins March 23 in New Orleans, LA and finishes in Orlando, FL May 26.

We The Kings self titled album We The Kings will be performed in its entirety on the “We The Kings 10” or “WTK 10.” We The Kings was released Oct. 2, 2007. Currently, We The Kings is touring solo. There is no word yet if they’re touring with any other band. The tour begins in Nashville, TN on Feb. 17, 2017 and commences in Hatfield, UK in May of 2017. Tickets and tour information can be found here.

I’ve been to anniversary album tours before for Mayday Parade’s Tales Told By Dead Friends and Cartel’s Chroma, and both bands played the album they toured for in its entirety. Going to anniversary tours gives nostalgic feelings to me when I go. If a band you like announces an anniversary tour, I highly recommend going to a date on the tour.

In other news, The Maine’s latest “Miserable Youth” was released, New Found Glory announced a 20 year anniversary tour to play classic albums that begins in March of 2017. Ticket information and tour dates can be found here, and the nominations for The Grammy’s were announced including Twenty One Pilots, Panic! At The Disco, and more.
