Third Eye Blind to Release New Album, “Screamer,” October 18 2019

“My current mood resonates with rebellion, energy, courage, and risk,” says Stephan Jenkins, on Third Eye Blind’s sixth full length album, Screamer (October 18). “I seek to combine it with a percussive level of musical immediacy in this collection of songs to cultivate collective idealism and an unapologetic aspiration towards humanistic values.” 

The follow up to 2018’s EP Thanks for Everything, Screamer finds Third Eye Blind collaborating with Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells (“Screamer”), Ryan Olson of Marijuana Death Squad, and Poliça (“Who Am I” and “Got So High”), with the album’s musical consigliere, Billy Corgan.

“We have always been so insular,” says Jenkins, “and on Screamer we adopted an open door policy — come in, be musical, and follow the song where it takes us.”

Going strong for over two decades, Third Eye Blind have broken their own attendance records with 2019’s Summer Gods tour. The biggest tour in the band’s history will wrap August 3 in Irvine, CA with Jimmy Eat World and Ra Ra Riot.  (Third Eye Blind has offset the tour’s carbon footprint by donating a portion of each ticket sold to a US-based carbon offset project managed by ClimeCo.)

“It’s an incredible feeling to be in a good rock band,” adds Jenkins.  “The gift that’s been given to me is that people view my music as enlivening them.”

Screamer will be available everywhere on October 18, and October 11 on the ‘Ten Bands One Cause’ Pink Vinyl Campaign Benefitting Gilda’s Club NYC.

SCREAMER explores the duality of our Dystopian present as catalyst for passionate humanism. Further critiques of music culture consumerism, escapism in the contest of post patriarchal mores weave through musical landscapes of raw bombast, threadbare breakdowns, and Judo flips of computer-based musical slickness.
