Jimmy Eat World promised fans some good news this week, and they have definitely kept their word.
On Monday (March 9), the Arizona-founded band announced plans to embark on a short, North American tour in the summer. Dubbed the “Criminal Energy” (after a track on their new album) tour, the group will be joined by the Front Bottoms throughout most of the outing.
The cross-continent trek will include stops in major cities such as Charlotte, Raleigh, Baltimore, New York, Toronto, Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake City, and more.
The 20-stop outing begins on August 6 at the Coca-Cola Roxy in Atlanta and concludes a month later on September 5 at Arizona Federal Theatre in Phoenix.
Pre-sales begin this Tuesday, March 10, at 10 a.m. local time. For those who miss out on pre-sales, don’t worry. General ticket sales for the “Criminal Energy” tour go on sale this Friday, March 13, at 10 a.m. local time.
Turnover and Joyce Manor will join Jimmy Eat World and the Front Bottoms on the upcoming excursion. Turnover will play the first half of the shows (Aug. 6 – 22), while Joyce Manor will take over during the second half (August 26- September 5).
Jimmy Eat World released their tenth studio album, Surviving, last fall. The record was met with a lot of praise from fans and critics alike.
The summer tour will be in support of the record’s release. Before hitting the North American touring circuit, Jilly Eat World already has several shows lined up. They will open for My Chemical Romance and hit the stage at a handful of music festivals, including Chain Fest and Bottlerock in California.
