Wrecking Ball Heart

Album: Single Release Only (2012)
  • Jack's Mannequin leader Andrew McMahon announced on September 11, 2012, that their November 11, 2012 gig in Los Angeles would mark the final show for the band and that instead he would be putting out new music under his own name. This was released as the band's final song as a group and McMahon explained how it came about: "Late one night in Santa Monica," he said, "I played my friend and long time producer, Jim Wirt, a demo of a song I wrote a few years back. No session was scheduled, but after a couple beers and some laughs we pulled out some microphones and cut it. The next day Jay and Bobby came through and did what they do best; selflessly and skilfully served the song."
