Eat Your Heart Out

Eat Your Heart Out

In Brisbane and Adelaide, Jimmy Eat World will be joined by fast rising Newcastle five-piece Eat Your Heart Out, who recently smashed it as part of the line-up for UNIFY Gathering (catch a glimpse of that here). Early 2019 saw the release of the band’s debut album Florescence, out via Fearless Records. The quintet – Caitlin Henry (vocals), Andrew Anderson (guitar), Will Moore (guitar), Dom Cant (bass), and Jake Cronin (drums) – showcase a searing power on tracks like ‘Carousel’ and ‘Closer To The Sun’, earning over 2.7m streams on Spotify in 2019 and rising.



Joining in Fremantle is red hot WA legends Gyroscope. The four-piece delivered a slew of triple j classics in the late ‘90s/early 00’s: think ‘Baby, I’m Getting Better’, ‘Snakeskin’, and ‘Fast Girl’... With 7 x Hottest 100 entries between 2003-2010, the band were quickly a staple of Australia’s festival scene, playing two Big Day Outs, Groovin The Moo, Splendour In The Grass and plenty more. Gyroscope earned nine WAMi awards, 3.4 million+ streams on Spotify, a #1 album in Breed Obsession, all before stirring it up again six months ago when they dropped EP 4YRLV . Now, they’ll appear as special guest of Jimmy Eat World – fun fact, who they played with in 2003!

Frontier Touring are delighted to welcome back one of the defining bands of American rock music: Jimmy Eat World, returning to Australia in March 2020 for their first visit in three years and in celebration of their recently released tenth studio album, Surviving, out now via Sony Music Australia.

The Arizona band will perform three special headline shows only while in Australia. First up: WA fans can get their fix at Fremantle venue Metropolis on Monday 16 March. Brisbane fans are up next with a show at The Tivoli on Thursday 19 March, while Adelaide audiences get their long-awaited turn with a gig at The Gov on Monday 23 March.

Coming three years after 2016’s Integrity Blues, Surviving is Jimmy Eat World’s most personal, ambitious album to date. With 25 years and 10 albums so far, frontman Jim Adkins proves once again why he’s one of the most prolific songwriters in rock & roll. Together with bandmates Rick Burch, Tom Linton and Zach Lind, Jimmy Eat World’s hard-rocking melodies and killer lyrics have won over fans for more than two decades now, thanks to iconic tracks such as: ‘Bleed American’, ‘The Middle’, ‘Sweetness’, ‘Pain’, ‘I Will Steal You Back’, ‘Always Be’, ‘Sure and Certain’ and many more.

If reviews of the band’s current US tour run this month are anything to go by, Jimmy Eat World’s tour in March 2020 is not to be missed!

‘The entire performance, in a nutshell, was breathtaking.’ –

‘There are few bands that can simply do no wrong, and Jimmy Eat World are one of them …  the band exuded a seasoned maturity not lacking for energy, feeding off the die-hards singing along against the barricade and the enthusiastic tipsy waving beers in the back.’ –

‘After a killer main set, the band turned up the heat for the encore, starting with “555” and then going into ‘Big Casino’ off Chase This Light … “The Middle” as the night’s final song was a definite crowd-pleaser, proving it’s a great song which still rips hard live to this day.’– Brooklyn Vegan

Fans got their first taste of new album Surviving via singles ‘Love Never’, ‘All The Way (Stay)’ and ‘555’, the 10-track album self-produced by the band with Integrity Blues producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen. Critics have praised the band for another stellar effort:

‘... the fact that Surviving sits so neatly amongst its predecessors says much about the work Jimmy Eat World have put in over the years in creating and refining a sound that is uniquely their own’ – The AU Review ★★★★

‘Packed with unfiltered feeling and power’ – Kerrang, 4/5

‘A collection of polished alt-rock pick-me-ups and feel-good collaborations’ – Billboard

‘Top to bottom, it’s a classic Jimmy Eat World record’ – Alternative Press

‘Far from a band merely surviving, it would seem Jimmy Eat World is thriving’ – Upset Magazine

Don’t miss Jimmy Eat World, playing Fremantle, Brisbane and Adelaide in March 2020!
