Jimmy Eat World to Play The Ryman May 12

JimmyEatWorld-620

Extending an extensive tour world tour in support of their excellent ninth album, last year’s Integrity Blues, famed alt rock and emo trailblazers Jimmy Eat World have finally plotted a lot overdue return to Nashville, their first stop in Music City in five years, May 12 at The Ryman Auditorium with emo revivalist stalwarts The Hotelier. While the tour announcement comes at the same time the group release a new Integrity Blues Acoustic EP, featuring stripped down cuts from last year’s LP (hear the title track below), fear not longtime fans, as it’s still the full-on, plugged in experience (though a few acoustic tunes in the mix would be a nice and likely touch).

With over 20 years of influential and beloved releases, few bands have been as important to the emo scene or have maintained as much breakout influence as Jimmy Eat World, who first rose to widespread recognition in the early ’00s (but made a big impact in the underground several years prior). The band have only played Nashville a handful of times over the years, and never at The Ryman, and with their live show sound better than ever these days, we can’t think of a more perfect spot than the Mother Church to see them in action. Tickets are available now, and they’re not likely to last.
