Third Eye Blind

Third Eye Blind going back to the beginning at Roundhouse

Third Eye Blind are headed to the UK and Ireland this autumn to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut album.

The four-date tour kicks off in London on 27 September at Roundhouse.

The band, who performed at last year’s Reading and Leeds festivals, have sold over 12 million records since forming in San Francisco in 1993. And, despite their most recent release ‘We Are Drugs’ hitting the iTunes Top 5, they’re probably best known for the hits from their first LP: ‘Semi-Charmed Life’, ‘Graduate’, ‘How’s It Going to Be’, ‘Losing a Whole Year’, and ‘Jumper’.  

“I think you could put it out now and it would sell,” frontman Stephan Jenkins recently told Rolling Stone, discussing the album he calls “dark and as vital”.

“I think that pain of not fitting into the world I was in and not feeling comfortable meant that in the long run, the song songs aren’t dated by trends and genres that were happening around me,” he added.

But Jenkins isn’t one for looking back for long. The band, who are currently wrapping up a tour of the US, plan to release their next album, ‘Summer Gods’, before the end of the year.
