Jimmy Eat World Tickets for Sale

Sweet guitars and pretty-boy vocals melt into each other like vanilla and chocolate ice cream on a waffle cone in August. Hooks are buried deep in the swarm of notes, giving this Arizona act's tightly knit Noise Pop sound a nearly impenetrable nature.

In the midst of mid-'90s grunge, four childhood friends formed a band that would eventually impact modern rock of the new millennium. Jimmy Eat World formed in 1994 with kindergarten pals Jim Adkins (vocals/guitar) and Zach Lind (drums), Tom Linton (guitar/vocals), and Mitch Porter (bass). The foursome derived the band's moniker from Linton's younger brothers, Ed and Jimmy. The two had a fight one day and Ed resorted to drawing a picture of his cherubic older brother eating the world with 'Jimmy Eat World' printed beneath. The band thought it was a perfect fit. Soon, they tinkered around with heavy punk rock sounds, playing small shows around their native Mesa, AZ. Influences ranged from Rocket From the Crypt, early Def Leppard, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Fugazi, and the Velvet Underground, leaving Jimmy Eat World as a work in progress.

This Mesa, Arizona, USA-based band was formed in 1994 by Jim Adkins (b. 10 November 1975; guitar/vocals), Tom Linton (b. 8 August 1975; guitar/vocals), Mitch Porter (bass) and Zach Lind (drums). Their One, Two, Three, Four EP and self-titled debut album, with Linton handling the majority of the vocals, were released on the Wooden Blue Records label the same year. Split-singles with Christie Front Drive, Emery and Blueprint followed. Porter had been replaced by Rick Burch by the time the band signed a recording contract with Capitol Records. Their major label debut, 1996's Static Prevails, featured a more polished take on the debut's melodic hardcore. Lead vocals on the album were shared between Adkins and Linton. Further split-singles with Mineral and Jejune preceded the band's second major label release, Clarity. Adkins' lead vocals added a perfect sheen to the band's intense power pop, while remaining true to their underground roots. The album was also released on vinyl by Big Wheel Recreation but marked the end of their tenure with Capitol. The quartet signed a new recording contract with DreamWorks for the release of 2001's Bleed American although the vinyl version was released by Grand Royal. The album, the band's bestselling release yet, placed them at the forefront of the new wave of so-called emo (emotional hardcore) bands breaking into the mainstream. The track 'The Middle' also broke into the Top 5 on the singles chart in summer 2002.
