Third Eye Blind are set to take the stage with Taking Back Sunday for a string of 31 US tour dates on their ‘Summer Gods Tour’, celebrating their 25th anniversary as a band.

The tour marks 25 years since the San Francisco five piece released their iconic debut self-titled studio album in April 1997. It is safe to say that the band have come a long, long way since then!

The tour is set to begin at Edgefield in the city of Troutdale, Oregon on June 22, before hitting cities like Kansas City, Indianapolis, Chicago and Pittsburgh. The ‘Summer Gods’ tour is to cease on August 13 in Irvine, California at the FivePoint Amphitheatre.

It has also been announced that the Australian surf rock band Hockey Dad will be joining Third Eye Blind and Taking Back Sunday as support on all 31 dates.

The US tour announcement comes following the recent release of Third Eye Blind’s seventh studio album ‘Our Bande Apart’ in late 2021, whereas Taking Back Sunday’s latest compilation is ‘Tidal Wave’ back in 2016.

Lead vocalist Stephan Jenkins has discussed the upcoming 25th anniversary tour; ‘Twenty-five years of Third Eye Blind finds us feeling glorious as if everything is coming into deeper focus. It’s not lost on us that this is a miracle, and that we are in it because of the new fans that keep discovering us and the people who, over the years, have made our music part of their culture.’

Taking Back Sunday’s John Nolan also added ‘In the early days of Taking Back Sunday, Adam and I used to drive around in his old Honda listening to Third Eye Blind’s second album, Blue; windows down, smoking cigarettes and singing along. If someone had told us back then that one day we’d tour together, it would’ve blown our minds. We’re so excited to be out with Third Eye Blind this summer, singing our songs and singing along with theirs.’

Tickets for all dates of the US tour will be available to purchase on Friday, February 18 10AM PST / 5PM GMT, with the pre-sales set to go live later today (February 15) at the same time here!
