Jimmy Eat World, an alternative rock band known for their hit single “The Middle,” is scheduled to virtually perform three of their albums in full.
“We are always looking for ways to challenge ourselves, to do things as music fans that we think would be cool for our fans,” states the band’s lead singer and guitarist, Jim Adkins. “We came up with the idea of presenting a series of concert films centered around a few specific albums (for now) and performing them on a different level.”
The series’ official press release states that each album performed represents a “chapter” of the band’s career. Their first chapter occurs Jan. 15th with the album, “Surviving,” followed by “Futures” on Jan. 29 and “Clarity” on Feb. 12.
“It isn’t the way we normally play a show,” continues Adkins. “[And] it’s definitely something new for how we approach a performance, but we haven’t been able to share the experience with our fans in over a year [due to the coronavirus pandemic]…so here we go!”
