While not quite the sales juggernaut that their previous album, Bleed American
, was, Jimmy Eat World's album Futures
features some of their most memorable songs and features the crisp, big rock sound that producer Gil Norton is known for. The reviews were good and the album continued the Mesa group's progression from notable emo act to solid rock act. Interestingly, some of the album was recorded here in Tucson.
To celebrate the album's tenth anniversary, the band is embarking on a tour which now includes a stop at the Rialto on October 29. The general sale for tickets kicks off on Friday at 10 a.m., but you can get tickets for what will almost certainly be a sellout show early with the presale password "FUTURES"
on Thursday at the same time.
