Jimmy Eat World continue the 2020 roadshow in support of their “bold, brave and  ultimately defiant” (NME) 10th studio album, “Surviving” (listen here). With 10 records to pull from, the sets will prove to satisfy all fans new and old. As the band proclaims: “Whether we’ve slept on your floor after the ‘97 basement show or you’ve just only recently heard about us, we will have something you’d be into catching live!”
Not to be missedThe Front Bottoms recently returned with “Camouflage,” a standalone single teasing a larger body of work on the horizon in 2020.  The FADER declared the song, “…a celebration of sorts for a band perennially on the fringes of a major breakthrough.”
Jimmy Eat World are Jim Adkins, Rick Burch, Tom Linton and Zach Lind.
