Jimmy Eat World to embark on the ‘Criminal Energy’ tour in the late summer

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.

Circa Survive announces ‘On Letting Go’ tenth anniversary tour

A little over a year after hitting the road in support of the tenth anniversary of Juturna, Circa Survive will be hitting the road for another ten-year anniversary. On Tuesday (Oct. 11), the Philadelphia-founded band announced that they will be hitting the road in 2017 to celebrate the tenth year anniversary of their sophomore album, On Letting Go.

“So many moments on that record personified what Circa Survive was starting to become.,” writes frontman Anthony Green on Facebook. “I’m really excited to revisit that with all of the knowledge we’ve been able to pick up since. It was a wild time in my life and it’s kind of an escape for me now to go back to that and celebrate it!”

Turnover and mewithoutYou will hit the road with Circa for the anniversary tour. VIP tickets are currently available while general admission will go on sale on Friday, Oct. 14 at 10 a.m. local time.

On Letting Go was released on May 29, 2007 through Equal Vision Records and earned the number 24 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, quite a feat for a band with only one record under their belt. Circa Survive has been a little on the quiet side since the release of their recent record, 2014’s Descensus.

Green, on the other hand, hasn’t. The singer reunited with Saosin earlier this year for the release of their new album, Along the Shadow and just recently wrapped up his solo tour behind his recently released solo record, Pixie Queen.

The first of the two gifts was their Christmas song, “Snow.” The second of the gifts was the announcement that they will once again be hitting the road in support of their recently released album, Resurrection.

The new tour has been titled the “Sleep When I’m Dead” Tour which for those who have listened to the record, would know that it’s a lyrics from their first single, “Selfless.”

The tour will begin on March 13 at The Glass House in Pomona, CA and will wrap up a month later on April 12 at Fitzgerald’s in Houston.

Check out the official poster for the tour which also reveals the identity of the “special guests” for the tour.
