Singer Andrew McMahon Diagnosed with Lymphatic Leukemia

Published: 2005-06-07
Andrew McMahon, lead singer of Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin, has been diagnosed with acute lymphatic leukemia. His doctors expect him to recover, but said that McMahon's voice could be permanently damaged if he were to continue singing without rest.

Something Corporate has released two albums, which have sold a combined 630,000 in the US. McMahon's other band Jack's Mannequin, will release their debut LP this August. As of now the tours for both Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin are on hold until further notice.

Something Corporate were scheduled to play the Vans Warped Tour in August while Jack's Mannequin were to tour some cities in the US at the beginning of June. No Canadian dates were scheduled for both bands.
