Video of the Week - Jack's Mannequin

I hope everyone enjoyed their long holiday weekend as much as I did. I thought I would start out slow this week with a video share. I got the opportunity to see Jack's Mannequin live this past weekend in Louisville Kentucky and I can't tell you how many times I had friends of mine ask me "Who's that?" when I explained the concert I had attended. So here's a little video intro to the band before I write a concert review later this week.

I won't do much to introduce the video because I don't want to take away from the video itself by trying to dig into it's meaning. But I will say that the video is to help promote the new Jack's Mannequin album coming out October 4th titled "People and Things".

As a fan of Andrew's music, this video puts a new definition to the music he has written and will write in the future. He states that he didn't see himself as a hero or an inspiration, but there is definitely something admirable about a man fighting for his life when that's the only option he's given. Andrew McMahon's music and his movie (see Dear Jack) has inspired many to live their lives with a rejuvenated perseverance because it's "a trench war worth fighting" for. And I am really excited to hear his new record.

If this video has sparked your interest, check out some music from Jacks Mannequin below and keep an eye out for the concert review later this week.
