Veteran indie-pop singer-songwriter Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness will headline at Manchester’s Gorilla later this month.
The Manchester gig is one of five UK and Ireland dates he is playing across June and July 2023. The gigs follow the release of his fourth album Tilt At The Wind No More.
Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness released the 11-track Tilt At The Wind No More earlier this year. It marks his first album for the label Nettwerk and features the Top 40 Alternative Radio hit Stars alongside Lying On The Hood Of Your Car, Skywriting, VHS, Build To Last and Smoke & Ribbons, featuring backing vocals from his 9-year old daughter Cecilia.
Grammy Award-winner Jeremy Hatcher and Grammy-nominee Tommy English produced the nostalgic album which captures the artist at a turning point in his life.
Celebrating his 40th birthday and 15th wedding anniversary alongside raising a daughter, working through past traumas in therapy and writing a memoir, the record sees the artist nod to the past while simultaneously looking excitedly to the future.
Andrew McMahon has sold nearly 2.5 million albums across all of his musical projects, received an Emmy nomination for his work on the NBC show ‘Smash’, and he released his memoir ‘Three Pianos’ in 2021. In 2006 he also founded the Dear Jack Foundation, after surviving his own battle with Acute Lymphocytic Leukaemia (ALL) at the age of 22.
Most recently McMahon participated in a Grammy U Masterclass as part of SXSW, discussing longevity in the music business with Taylor Hanson, and he will complete an extensive US headline tour this Spring before heading to the UK and Ireland. Tickets are available now here, and full dates and details are below.
