Something Corporate reunites for summer tour

, Staff

After a lengthy hiatus, Something Corporate have reunited and will hit the road again this summer. The band will make their way to Massachusetts on Thursday, August 12 for a show at the House of Blues in Boston. Tickets go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $32.50 and $42.50.

After beating leukemia and releasing albums with Jack’s Mannequin, singer/pianist Andrew McMahon has got back together with guitarist Josh Partington, bassist Kevin “Clutch” Page and drummer for Brian Ireland for the first time since disbanding in 2004. In January, the band reentered the studio and revisited some old demos such as “Letters to Noelle” and “Wait”.

“I think the beauty of this reunion is that we waited until we were ready,” said McMahon in a press release. “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.”

Something Corporate released a 2-CD compilation album, Played in Space: The Best of Something Corporate, last month. The first CD features some of the bands bigger songs such as “I Woke Up in A Car” and “If You C Jordan”, while the bonus CD includes remix of some of the band’s material songs (including  “I Woke Up in A Car” by Owl City’s Adam Young), previously unreleased tracks and other rarities. The digital album version exclusive to iTunes also includes a new recording, “Letters To Noelle.”

Recently, the band returned to the live setting by played three of the Bamboozle Festival dates: Bamboozle Chicago, Bamboozle East (in New Jersey) and Bamboozle Left (in California).
