THIRD EYE BLIND ANNOUNCE UPCOMING APPEARANCE AT
25TH ANNIVERSARY OF LOLLAPALOOZA FROM JULY 28-31

BAND CURRENTLY MAKING NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR APPEARANCES WITH PERFORMANCE AT BONNAROO CONFIRMED FOR JUNE 9-12

NEW ALBUM, DOPAMINE, IN STORES AND ONLINE NOW

“Jenkins remains a consistent and capable leader on ‘Dopamine’… the songwriting is clean
and captivating.” – The Associated Press

“18 years down the road from ‘Semi-Charmed Life’, Jenkins still has got a knack for spinning sunshine out of moody tunes – ‘Everything Is Easy’ and ‘Back to Zero’ reimagine the Cure and Arcade Fire as radio gold, and ‘Rites of Passage’ kicks references to Occupy and Bowie.” – Rolling Stone

“‘Dopamine’ updates the band’s assertively infectious sound, giving its frantic riffs and tongue-twisting wordplay a contemporary luster.” – San Francisco Chronicle

WATCH: “SOMETHING IN YOU” (LIVE)

Additionally, Third Eye Blind recently released a music video for “Something In You.” Featuring a live version of the song and footage taken from the band’s sold out summer amphitheater tour, “Something In You” speaks as a love letter to the thousands of fans who have passionately continued to support the band and its vision over the course of their lengthy career. Check out the video for “Something In You” HERE.

Third Eye Blind recently issued its first album in six years titled Dopamine (available on iTunes and Amazon) and celebrated its release with multiple U.S. tours. Songwriter Stephan Jenkins, renowned for his inimitable lyrical sensibility, developed this collection while on tour over the last few years behind the band’s previous number one album, Ursa Major. Though it employs signature guitar riffs, Dopamine is very much an exploration and rumination of the present tense. 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. Paradoxically Third Eye Blind’s focus on guitar and live playing sounds novel and newly fresh in a pop landscape consumed with sequenced drums and keyboard tracks. There is a sense of spontaneity to Dopamine that can only come from their evolution as a live band. What remains constant, however, is the endearing quality in the music and the fierce heartfelt core of Jenkins’ narrative.
