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.
