Jack’s Mannequin are out on tour supporting their latest release, People And Things, but the road looks narrow from here on out. Andrew McMahon mentioned in a recent interview that he is considering retiring the Jack’s Mannequin name after this tour.
A portion of the interview with Andrew McMahon can be read by looking below.
“I’m going to be coming off of this tour and pretty much taking the rest of the year off, and part of that’s going to be about answering that question. And seeing if that means that maybe I have to wind down the Jack’s Mannequin name and start looking at music from a different angle so I can unwind my brain from that part of my life. I foresee an end to the usage of that name. I don’t know that it’s doing for me what it used to, in the sense that Jack’s sort of really represented a freedom from something. And a really free approach to creating things that now is certainly wrapped up in a whole lot of turmoil and tumult in a very difficult time in my life. And to acknowledge that, I certainly think at some point I’m going to have to find a way to shake that loose. And I think to some extent that might mean retiring the name.”
