Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness news

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness will release new album Zombies on Broadway on February 10, 2017 via Vanguard Records, a follow up to McMahon's eponymous debut album that launched the gold-selling, cross-genre, top 5 alternative and AAA hit "Cecilia in the Satellite." The album will be available for pre-order on Nov. 18 accompanied by two songs: Alternative Radio Top 20 hit "Fire Escape" and "Brooklyn, You're Killing Me."

In celebration of the release, AMITW will embark on a national headlining 'Zombies in America' U.S. tour with support from Atlas Genius and Night Riots. The tour kicks off in March. Pre-sale tickets for the tour have started, with general on-sale tickets starting on Nov. 18 at 10am local time. Visit for more info.

McMahon talks about the impetus behind Zombies on Broadway - "I wrote this album in the middle of a whirlwind, when the future was unclear. I found my way to the city, thinking I could settle a score with a ghost. You can't, so I came home and rewrote the ending," he says.

Having been diagnosed with cancer in New York in 2005, McMahon found himself wanting to return to the city to battle some demons leading to the creation of Zombies On Broadway. Its lead single, "Fire Escape" shares the tale of McMahon's experience in the city that never sleeps; it's already reached #17 on Alternative radio and is currently growing at AAA and Rock as well. His self-titled debut launched the cross-genre smash single, "Cecilia and the Satellite," a Top 5 hit across both Alternative and AAA radio, Top 10 hit at Hot AC and also climbed up the Pop chart.

Aside from his professional successes, McMahon is an 11 year survivor of leukemia and founder of the Dear Jack Foundation, one of the first Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) specific cancer foundations which advocates for and supports initiatives that benefit AYAs diagnosed with cancer. McMahon lives in Los Angeles with his wife of 10 years Kelly and their daughter Cecilia, of whom the hit single was penned about. For more information on Dear Jack Foundation visit
