Retweet. Andrew McMahon&Matt Theissen collaborating?
As you may have guessed, I'm a big fan of twitter. I'm always clicking through my updates and it has treated me well. I've been able to get some big scoops off of musicians' personal twitters for plans coming in the future and I've just come across a jackpot.
The lead singers and writers for both Relient K and Jack's Mannequin, being Matt Thiessen and Andrew McMahon respectively are at the moment playing piano and singing songs together. It's not exactly a collaboration but who knows what could possibly come of it? I have been listening to both of their groups that they find themselves in currently, along with Andrew's first major band Something Corporate and this is very exciting news. Just to know they are playing together and messing around, since that situation has been played so many times. A few examples? Zooey Deschanel and M.Ward, Craig Owens and Pete Wentz and the list goes on and on.
Jack's Mannequin are putting out a new album this year and Relient K dropped their latest effort late 2009 so who knows what may come!
here is the tweet itself:
matthewthiessen Playing piano and singing songs with my pal Andrew McMahon. There is fun here. And we're having it.
Follow Matt Thiessen @matthewthiessen and I don't believe Andrew has a twitter anymore, or I'm just out of the loop!
You can always follow me at @mixandmark though! :)
