They say there’s no rest for the wicked, and evidently Jimmy Eat World qualifies.
Despite only recently completing an extensive co-headline tour with Paramore, planning a European tour for June (having already toured Europe and Japan earlier this year), and with a special hometown show at Phoenix’s Dodge Theater on June 18th, the band has announced a new string of July tour dates in the US and Canada. All this globetrotting follows appearances on both The Late Show with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in support of their latest album Chase This Light, and the band continues to thrill with their live show, which the Boston Globe recently called “forceful, galvanizing, and exhilarating.”
Jimmy Eat World has also just released a new two-disc deluxe edition of their breakthrough album Bleed American. Originally released in 2001, the album features the smash hits “The Middle”, “Sweetness”, and “A Praise Chorus”. Bleed American catapulted the band to international stardom and is undoubtedly one of the decade’s landmark rock albums. The new deluxe edition features a wide range of b-sides and bonus tracks, as well “Your House 2007”, a new recording and re-imagining of the Bleed American track.
