After 20 years performing as Jimmy Eat World, it seems the band is taking a bit of time to work on individual musical endeavors. The first member to break out on their own? Frontman Jim Adkins, who has announced his first-ever solo tour taking place this summer.

According to a statement released by the musician:

“In the past I have been involved with solo work, playing mostly benefit concerts locally in my home of Arizona. Toward the end of our last European tour I decided to stick around and play a solo show in Berlin, DE. I thought to myself: hey, this is different and also pretty fun… I could keep going.

So why not? This summer and fall of 2015 I will be touring with me and a guitar. Playing new solo material, rock band songs and covers (no freebird!). I am trying to play places and venues we haven’t been to in a long time with the band, or maybe ever.”

The tour kicks off on June 28 at The Frequency in Madison, WI, and wraps up on July 28 at Masonic Lodge at Hollywood in Los Angeles. Check below for a full list of stops.
