Jack's Mannequin Score Top 10 Debut

10/13/2011
.
Jack's Mannequin scored an impressive showing for their third release, People and Things, which debuted at no. 1 on Billboard's Alternative Albums Chart and at no. 9 on the overall Billboard 200 chart this week.

The band is out now on a headlining tour that kicked off last week with a special show with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra where they created symphonic arrangements for some of their best-known hits.

11 short films were created for every song on People and Things. Andrew McMahon wanted to provide an artistic visual counterpart to the album and enlisted the help of independent film directors from around the world, many of which he found on Vimeo. The films debuted in a special screening at Angelika Theatre in NYC last week and are all now streaming on YouTube.
