Jimmy Eat World are 'stoked' to announce a U.S. tour to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the album, Futures, according to a post from their Facebook on June 24. The band will be performing the album in its entirety on the tour, which begins this fall, at The Space at Westbury on Oct 20.
Futures, released in October 2004, was well-received by critics. The album featured one of the more aggressive sounding songs of the band's extensive catalog and lead single, “Pain.” Songs like the anthem-esque “The World You Love” and lengthy “23” became fan-favorites throughout the years. The record combined elements of their previous two releases, emo gem Clarity and pop-rock breakout Bleed American. The overall sound and song arrangements of Futures was bigger, thanks to Gil Norton (The Pixies, Foo Fighters) being brought on as producer.
Jimmy Eat World have another impressive milestone to celebrate this year as they have been a band for 20 years. To commemorate this occasion, they have announced vinyl repressings of their albums Static Prevails, Clarity, and of course, Futures. Fans of the band have had a hard time finding these records at an affordable price as they have been out-of-print for quite some time and had a high secondary market value. The records are now available for preorder via their webstore and will be on the tour with the band this fall.
Tickets for the Futures tour will go on sale to the general public June 27.
