Jimmy Eat World’s Summer Tour

Arizonians aren’t the only ones who will enjoy Jimmy Eat World in 2013. The band recently announced their plans for an entire US tour this summer. From Mesa, AZ, the foursome rock band composed of Jim Adkins, Tom Linton, Rick Burch and Zach Lind (although fans for the band know that the spot of bass guitarist was held by Mitch Porter prior to Burch) was formed in 1993. Ten years later, the band, whose name originated from a crayon drawing by Linton’s younger brother, is still primed to please fans with their upcoming studio album, Damage, which will be out on June 11. For Rolling Stone, Jim Adkins acknowledged the decade between their formation and this new album, noting that the band’s lyrics have evolved in nature, as the members themselves have aged: “I’m 37 and the world around me is a lot different than when I was writing break-up songs in my 20s. I tried to reflect that in what the lyrics are.”

In August, Jimmy Eat World will be making East Coast stops in Portland, ME, Boston, New York City at Central Park’s Summerstage, Washington, DC at the 9:30 Club.
