We already told you about the busy year that lay ahead of Jimkata, a band that has been touring steadily since January 17 with no plans to stop anytime soon. Besides their current tour, which wraps up on April 6 in Ithaca, NY, the band has just announced additional dates that see them throughout the East Coast and South. Those shows begin right where the first leg leaves off, with a gig at Thunderbird Lounge in Pittsburgh, PA, followed by a performance at Water Street Music Hall in Rochester, NY. The last show of the tour falls on May 3, at Red Square in Albany, NY.

Jimkata, a four-piece jam band out of upstate New York, are gearing up for a busy 2013. They were recently added (along with rockers Primate Fiasco) to this year’s annual Snoe.Down Festival, plus will be playing an official Umphrey’s McGee after-party on February 9, in St. Louis, MO. They've also added additional tour dates to an already packed schedule, and will make the rounds throughout the U.S. this winter. The fun kicks off on January 17, with a performance in New Haven, CT, at Stella Blues, and doesn't wrap up until April 6, with a hometown show at The Haunt in Ithaca, NY. They’ll make stops in the East, West and Midwest throughout their journey.
Through extensive touring and honing of their craft, Jimkata aim to distinguish themselves among other jam bands by playing synthetic, rock-based tunes that blend anthemic dance-pop with heavy beats. Their first release, 2007’s self-titled EP, garnered some buzz on the jam scene upon release, but their latest effort, Die Digital, is a true testament to the band’s sound and style. By far their strongest release to date, be sure to catch the new tunes when the band heads out on tour this winter.
