Where people listen
North is the third and final studio album by American rock band Something Corporate. Near the beginning of the writing process for the album, vocalist and pianist Andrew McMahon and guitarist Josh Partington wanted it to "sound like a winter album", in contrast to their debut album Leaving Through the Window which they viewed as a "summer album". Following North ' s announcement in July , the band went on tour supporting and Good Charlotte. The band subsequently went on a headlining United States tour from October to December. North received a positive response from music critics, several reviewers noted the band's musical growth since their debut album.
Andrew McMahon is the voice of a generation—at least, he is for pop-punk die-hards in the early s. This year marks two big anniversaries for the songwriter: Jack's Mannequin's debut album, Everything in Transit , turned 10 in August , and his first band Something Corporate's super-hard-to-find first album Ready Break celebrated its 15th anniversary in September. Even though a few of those songs were re-recorded for later albums—including "Drunk Girl" and "Cavanaugh Park"—one hidden track sticks out as the band's No. Yet it's one he rarely plays. When we caught up with Andrew recently, he revealed the full history of the song—including how it was supposed to be half as long, who it's really about, and why he won't be playing it more than once a year. Glamour: Ready… Break turns 15 this year, and that's the first version of "Konstantine" that fans heard. Do you remember when you wrote it?
