Reunited Something Corporate Announce Summer Tour
Frontman Andrew McMahon says, "I think the beauty of this reunion is that we waited until we were ready. There is such a good vibe going between all of us and getting to play these songs again has been a true joy. The festival dates have been a rush, but I think we're all fired up to get back into the clubs and theatres -- where we really cut our teeth for the first time."
Recently the band played three Bamboozle dates — Bamboozle Chicago, Bamboozle East and Bamboozle Left (Angel Stadium in Anaheim), the latter a homecoming for singer-pianist Andrew McMahon, lead guitarist Josh Partington, bassist Kevin "Clutch" Page, and drummer Brian Ireland.
Something Corporate recently issued a 2-CD retrospective collection, Played In Space: The Best Of Something Corporate (Geffen/UMe), released on April 27, 2010, which brings together 14 highlights from the acclaimed Orange County, California band's career to date. The first disc contains alt-rock favorites "I Woke Up In A Car," "If You C Jordan," "Punk Rock Princess" and "Space." The bonus CD includes a new recording, "Wait," an exclusive remix of "Forget December," the fan-favorite rarity "Konstantine," the previously unreleased in the U.S. "Watch The Sky" and a new remix of "I Woke Up In A Car" by Owl City's Adam Young. The digital album version exclusive to iTunes also includes a new recording, "Letters To Noelle."
