Two decades after he woke up in a car, Andrew McMahon woke up 40 years old. To celebrate the occasion, he got Something Corporate back together.
The long-defunct band, which has been on hiatus since 2011, reunited for a six-song set during McMahon’s 40th birthday concert, which was held last Friday in Anaheim, California.
“Truthfully, it’s rare that all of us can even get together, and the guys from Something Corporate are all individually successful in their own rights and other businesses,” McMahon tells Alternative Press of the reunion. “It felt like, ‘Here’s a chance where we don’t have to make it a show about that, but also have them play some songs with me and a chance for us to freak out together.'”

After Something Corporate first went on hiatus in the mid-2000s, McMahon launched his Jack’s Mannequin project. He now releases music under the solo moniker Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, which produced the single “Cecilia and the Satellite.”
The latest Wilderness release is the track “Stars,” which premiered in August.
