Jimmy Eat World at Osheaga 2013 (more by Toby Tenenbaum)
Jimmy Eat World

Jimmy Eat World are celebrating the tenth anniversary of their fifth album, Futures, on a tour this year. The tour doesn't hit NYC, but it will be in the area for shows on October 17 at Capitol Theatre and October 20 at The Space at Westbury. Tickets for the Cap show and the Westbury show go on sale Friday (6/27) at noon with fan club presales beginning Thursday (6/26) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

While a Futures tour isn't as exciting as say, the Clarity tour they did in 2009, it's still sure to be a great one. If you haven't been keeping up with Jimmy Eat World's catalog over the years, it's an easy mistake to write off their post-"The Middle" period as all radio-friendly pop rock, but plenty of Futures lives up with their more classic material. The album brought back some of Clarity's slower, darker material that didn't appear as often on Bleed American, but a song like "Work" proved they still had great hooks in them too. Revisit Futures with a stream of the album below.

In other news, Jimmy Eat World are also reissuing 1996's Static Prevails, 1999's Clarity, and Futures on double LPs via Universal on August 19, September 2, and September 30, respectively. Each reissue is being remastered and comes with bonus material. You can pre-order them now.

Lastly, as discussed, Jimmy Eat World are also playing two shows with The Gaslight Anthem and Against Me! in Philly and NJ this September.

All dates are listed, with the Futures stream, below...

Didn't everyone hate Futures? Just do a Static Prevails tour instead.

Futures had a few okay singles if we're not counting "Pain," but it was definitely the album where you know the Bleed American success wasn't going to last.

"Didn't everyone hate Futures? Just do a Static Prevails tour instead."

Not at all. Static Prevails is pleasant but still shows the band finding their voice. Futures is the best rounded in my opinion.

I've been to the Capitol a few times and really enjoy it. For any of you guys who've been to the Space at Westbury, how does it compare?

I think it's time we all start admitting that based on his coverage of his perfect blend of coverage of hardcore, punk, emo and trendy indie rock, Andrew Sacher has the biggest bone in his pants around here and every guy should be asking him if he can plow their girlfriends while they watch and wish they could be half the man he is.

Who actually likes this shit besides from a 14 year old in 2002?

11:42 awwww you're finding out that people like things you don't! it's a big world out there.

I'm one of the few people who considers Futures to be their best album, so I'm very excited about this. But seriously, no NYC show??

static prevails and the 1994 self titled are the only two records worth listening to. Linton was such a better vocalist than Adkins.

I guarantee you that exactly zero people listened to this album in 2002, nice try though.

Damn, playing right near me but I don't particularly care for this album. Wish they would just do Clarity again.

I'd prefer Clarity. Hearing "For Me This Is Heaven" live would be wild.

JEW succeeded the old fashioned way; talent and hard work. "Futures", indeed.

And, yet...the guitarist of Jawbreaker plays is an awful band and tours in a van and Blake is a hermit in BK who pretty much bartends once in a while.

Only one band who should reunite and that is Jawbreaker.

A Slint reunion would be top notch

Who has $32 to drop on a double LP?

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2014 2:40 PM

1.) Futures
2.) Clarity
3.) Bleed American

Static Prevails is not very good.

I miss seeing commercials for movies about high school hijinks sound-tracked by 'the middle'

Jew had impeccable timing to make money. They were part of the final wave of musical acts to make money (a lot) by selling CDs. Good on them but it breeds a lot of envy.

It does not surprise that Sacher is fluent about horseshit like Jimmy Eats World, but knows virtually nothing about actual good music.

Pitchfork gave "Futures" a 3.0 score when it came out. I predict a re-assessment to a [9.3 - 9.5] range along with a "Best New Reissue" tag.

That's because Ian Cohen loves emo and pedophilia, and has turned that site into a Drive-Thru records tribute page.

Ian Cohen = Andrew Sacher
