Supporting Act TBA. Seminal Debut album to Be Performed in its Entirety for the First Time. In recognition to their fans for 20 years down, Third Eye Blind will, for the first time in their storied history, play their debut album, considered one of the great rock records of all time, in its entirety, as part of a night of music including their latest, We Are Drugs.
The 31-show amphitheater tour includes a performance at the scenic Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys on Sunday, July 16th.
Third Eye Blind was everywhere in 2016. We Are Drugs hit iTunes top 5 alternative records. They sold out numerous headline shows and set attendance records at 2016 Summer music festivals worldwide including Outside Lands, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Tokyo’s Summersonic, and UK’s Reading and Leeds Festivals.
3eb have continually trended, making headlines in the political arena with Stephan Jenkins’ hold- nothing- back opinion pieces and trolling of the RNC.
Third Eye Blind are clearly one of the most vibrant and volatile rock acts of the moment.
3eb also recently landed on national headlines during a surf session when they were filmed by paparazzi while rescuing a group of kids caught in a rip current off the beaches of North Carolina. This lifeguard incident came with a special twist, as it occurred after the band had just performed a benefit show in support of the NC Transgender community’s efforts to defeat the odious HB2 legislation.
They’ve made appearances for charitable organizations like “Make Room,” Children’s Hospitals, and PETA. Stephan is a strong supporter of the Jimmy Miller foundation, a project especially close to Stephan’s heart where Stephan shares surfing with active duty Marines and Vets afflicted with PTSD.
“We have always had that punk ethos of ‘say what you mean no matter what’ and ‘show up when you are needed,’” says Jenkins. “I think that is more true of us now than ever. We haven’t gotten soft at all.”
The release of the We Are Drugs EP is the next chapter in Third Eye Blind’s legacy – a fully-realized body of work that incorporates the band’s perfect pop sensibility with an ever-present progressive intent. Jenkins utilizes his characteristic rhythmic vocal style and lyrical prowess on issues of identity, connection, isolation and authenticity while keeping a sharp eye on a culture in rapid change.
Third Eye Blind continues to write, record and tour, while growing a larger, younger and more dedicated fanbase than ever. 2017 is where Third Eye Blind shows gratitude for 20 years and counting. They are a band focused on the future though, so look for surprises leading up to The Summer Gods Tour.
3eb represents the “rock” part in Summer Rock Tours - no sequencers, no backing tracks, they make something true, transcendent and passionate every night.
“We are all about fostering a feeling of aliveness and connection,” says Stephan Jenkins. “That’s why we have the Summer vibes, because our heat comes from being alive and in the moment and you can only get it when you are willing to keep it real. No one can create the vibes we do fronting over a backing track.”
