ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Emerging as a trailblazing name in the mid-'90s emo scene, Jimmy Eat World eventually found a larger audience by embracing a blend of alternative rock and power pop that targeted the heart as well as the head. The band's influence widened considerably with 1999's Clarity -- an album that has since emerged as a landmark of the emo genre -- but it was the band's follow-up, 2001's "Bleed American" and the infectious single "The Middle," that broke them into the commercial rock mainstream. The emo label proved difficult to shake throughout the 2000s, even when subsequent Top 10 albums "Futures" (2004) and "Chase This Light" (2007) did little to evoke the hard-edged sensitivity of Clarity, but Jimmy Eat World still remained a league above the generation of genre torch-bearers they helped spawn. Settling into comfortable veteran status in the 2010s, the band continued to issue reliable Top 20 efforts, rounding out the decade with their 10th album, 2019's "Surviving." The Clyde in Fort Wayne is a stop on Surviving, The Tour making its way through the country in celebration of this new album.
Nurturing arena-sized ambitions, White Reaper remind us that "fun as hell" is a primary purpose of music. Equal parts glam and grit, White Reaper's forthcoming Elektra Records debut finds the band packing classic rock with grinning twin guitar leads into masterly crafted pop songs. Expected later this year, the album will follow 2017's critically acclaimed "The World's Best American Band," which was praised by Pitchfork for having "more riffs than you can fit into the trunk of a Camaro." White Reaper recently treated fans to an early taste of new music with the release of their brand new single "Might Be Right."
