The Frontier Touring Company is excited to announce Australian and New Zealand tour dates for Jimmy Eat World in April 2011. The band will return to our shores in support of their sixth full-length album, Invented. Fellow Phoenix resident Courtney Marie Andrews, who sings backing vocals on several tracks on Invented will be joining the band on tour.

Formed in 1994, Jimmy Eat World have gained a cult following of loyal fans over the years and have established themselves as alternative rock heavyweights. Since the 1999 release of their breakthrough debut album Clarity, they have sold millions of records and toured with some of the biggest names in modern rock.

The band, comprised of Jim Adkins on Vocals/ Guitar, Rick Burch on Bass/ Vocals, Tom Linton on Guitar/ Vocals and Zach Lind on Drums, are well known for hits such as ‘The Middle’, ‘Sweetness’ and ‘Pain’ and fans in Australia and New Zealand can look forward to a high energy performance full of Jimmy Eat World’s signature big hooks and sing-along melodies.

Invented, produced by Mark Trombino who was also responsible for the bands first three albums, has had great international success. The album debuted at #20 on the ARIA Chart in October and reached #3 on the US Billboard Rock Albums Chart as well as #2 on the Billboard Alternative Albums Chart.

Critics agree that Invented perfectly showcases the talent and musicianship the band is known for:

“Never a group to let their fans down, the quartet have delivered another album full of stunning music, beautifully recorded and written.” – FasterLouder

“Jimmy Eat World sounded fantastic. They were tight, they were full of energy and they had the crowd eating out of their palms.” – Music Universe.
