Arizona rockers Jimmy Eat World have announced a special local guest for their show at the Metropolis Fremantle on Monday, March 16. In a wet dream addition for local emo fans of the early 00s, red hot WA legends Gyroscope (pictured above) are the latest additions to the bill.
This four-piece delivered a slew of triple j classics in the late 90s/early 00s: think Safe Forever, Snakeskin, Fast Girl and Baby, I’m Getting Better. The band were quickly a staple of Australia’s festival scene, playing two Big Day Outs, Groovin The Moo and plenty more.
Jim Adkins-led Jimmy Eat World delivered their most personal, ambitious record to date with their latest listen, Surviving. In 2016, Apple debuted an ad to promote Apple Music which featured pop music icon Taylor Swift lip-syncing and dancing to Jimmy Eat World’s The Middle which caused significant renewed interest in the band, with their song rising to #32 on the iTunes Top Songs Chart.
Touched by our recent bushfire crisis, Jimmy Eat World are also lending their support during their upcoming shows. The band has designed a new t-shirt which will be available on tour and is currently available on their webstore, with proceeds going to Red Cross Australia.
Jimmy Eat World will be joined by Gyroscope at the Metropolis Fremantle on Monday, March 16. Tickets from Oztix.
