Andrew McMahon announces new album, releases “Teenage Rockstars” + 2019 tour

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness has returned, and will be releasing his new album, Upside Down Flowers, on November 16th. It will serve as the follow-up to 2017’s, Zombie on Broadway.

Regarding the album, Andrew McMahon states “I wrote this fast and alone in a California winter. I entrusted the production to Butch Walker, a friend and fellow traveler. A man I met in a moment so bizarre and so far gone now, but one that shaped me for years to come. How grateful I am we ended up back in each others orbits. I’ve sent this record to friends who have said it’s my best and to some who never replied. What that means in the long run, I have no idea. What I know is this came from someplace primal and practiced and true. Find what you love, be patient or be quick. There is a piece of me in this and I hope a piece of you, my friends. As I see it we are all upside down flowers. Beautiful and backwards, and if we’re lucky…just a little proud.”

To celebrate the announcement, a new song called “Teenage Rockstars” can be found at the top of this post. The song is accompanied by a music video, and though there are sprinkles of Andrew McMahon seemingly signing along to the song, a lot of the video is dominated by previous footage of McMahon performing in Something Corporate — which is entirely fitting given the nostalgic nature of the track.

In addition to all of that, Andrew Mcmahon in the Wilderness be heading out on tour in early-2019 in support of Upside Down Flowers. Joining him on tour will be Flor and Grizfolk. The tour will kick off on January 23rd in Phoenix, Arizona and wrap up on March 24th in San Diego, California.
