A few days after revealing he would be performing a couple of solo shows in June, Jimmy Eat World frontman, Jim Adkins, has revealed that those three shows are just the beginning of his Summer and Fall solo trek.

The singer had previously revealed that he had been working on some solo material during Jimmy Eat World’s downtime, but now it looks like he’s ready to take the solo act on the road.

In a letter to fans which he released earlier in the day, Adkins reveals that after 21 years of following the same cycle with JEW (“write, tour, record, tour, pull our heads together, and then write again”) he had gotten bored and was ready for something new and exciting (no, they are not going on hiatus).

Thanks to a chance opportunity in Berlin while JEW was on tour in Europe, Adkins decided to go on his own and perform a solo show. He found the opportunity to play solo to be “pretty different” and “fun” and decided to extend that further with a tour and like he writes, “2015 seemed like as good as any.”

Adkins reveals that the tour will be just him and a guitar traveling around the country this Summer and Fall. As of now, he hasn’t released any specific tour stop, except for the three tour dates he had previously released earlier this week (June 21: The Haunt – Ithaca, NY; June 22: BSP Kingston – Kingston, NY; June 23: The Space – Hamden, CT).
