BURBANK, Calif. – Premier pop powerhouse Jack’s Mannequin has confirmed their first worldwide tour of the new year in support of their critically-lauded sophomore Sire/Warner Bros. Records album, “The Glass Passenger.”
“One doesn’t have to know McMahon’s back stories or relationship status to relate to his music — and that’s what makes ‘The Glass Passenger’ a fantastic, special album,” Alternative Press Magazine noted.
The tour will kick off Down Under in Australia this month before moving across the U.K. and Europe, and will touch down in the U.S. in early April through late May.
“The Resolution,” the current single and video from “The Glass Passenger” (directed by “Twilight” author Stephanie Meyer) has garnered its share of media attention and pure fan response. The clip has remained a Top 20 video at MTV.com and MTV2.com since September 2008.
“‘The Resolution’ is one of this year’s most hope-filled pop songs,” USA Today revered.
The track and video has resonated so deeply with fans that a new, live performance version of the song will debut on MTV Hits and MTV.com on Feb 4.
The performance was captured live in New York City during the band’s intimate small theater tour. The clip will air every other hour, on the hour on MTV Hits on Feb. 4.
A brand new iTunes exclusive digital EP is currently being readied for release and will go on sale on Mar. 17. The EP, as yet untitled, will contain five songs recorded live in front of an ecstatic wall-to-wall crowd packed into the Apple SoHo store in New York City last Dec. 3. Track listing and title will become available shortly.
The Jack’s Mannequin Web site is currently undergoing some construction and is expected to go live Feb. 18.
