For many, Jimmy Eat World is epitomized by their 2001 release Bleed American. Featuring hits like "The Middle", "Sweetness", "Hear You Me" and "A Praise Chorus", if you were a teenager in the early 2000's, this album had a place in your discography. But this four-piece group from Tempe, Arizona offers so much more than the poppy radio singles off their third album. A group recognized by many to be the leading forefathers of the emo genre, Bleed American is only the tip of the iceberg for this band. In fact, their album with the most cult following just might be their release just after Bleed American, the 2004 album Futures. Riddled with hits like "Pain", "Work", and "Futures", and fan favorites "23", "Polaris", and "Drugs or Me", Futures marked a new era for the band in many different ways.
This fall, Futures turns 10 years old, and to celebrate, Jimmy Eat World are touring throughout the month of October across the US, playing the album in it's entirety. For any diehard fan, this show is something they've been waiting patiently for, but for the passive fans that may only know their radio singles? This show is a must. What better way to come to understand a bands true ability than to see them in full form, playing what both the band and fans believe to be a defining chapter of their careers.
Tomorrow night, Jimmy Eat World take the stage at The Ogden Theatre for a show that I do not recommend you miss. Tickets are still available here, and the rest of the tour's dates can be found below.
