Singer-songwriter Andrew McMahon is working on a new solo album and preparing for a summer tour, but he took a quick break from looking ahead to reflect on the projects that led him to his solo career, one of which being Something Corporate, the pop-punk band made popular in the early-aughts.
McMahon fronted the band from 1998 to 2006, and moved on to Jack’s Mannequin when the group disbanded. Thanks to emotionally driven alt hits like “If You C Jordan” and “I Woke Up in a Car,” Something Corporate amassed a devoted fanbase. So when the group announced a reunion tour and greatest hits album in 2010, fans were overjoyed to get another listen. Six years later, and a decade since the band initially disbanded, EW caught up with McMahon at Live Nation’s National Concert Day to ask about the possibility of a Something Corporate revival.
“The Something Corporate thing just becomes trickier on a logistic level, because everybody has their lives,” McMahon said. “We see each other, but everybody’s got kids and real jobs, so finding a time to get us all in one space…”
But hope is not lost, Something Corporate fans. McMahon teased that he has potential plans for a reunion. He wouldn’t say much but admitted, “I have a harebrained idea that maybe would make it possible to at least play some shows somewhere that has yet to flesh itself out,” McMahon said. “But we’ll be on a stage again together at some point; whether it’s for a tour, maybe not, but I’m sure we’ll play together again in some capacity.”
