Third Eye Blind announce UK and Euro tour dates
New album “Dopamine” physical release October 30th (UK)
Ahead of the release of their first album in six years, ‘Dopamine’, Third Eye Blind are pleased to announce details of a UK and European headline tour, which will kick off on November 5th.
Led by frontman Stephan Jenkins, Third Eye Blind have sold over 12 million records since their inception and completely sold out Shepherd’s Bush Empire and The Forum in Kentish Town on their last UK tour. Their first album in six years, ‘Dopamine’ is out in October and chronicles the tumultuous years since their last release with their signature guitar riffs and rock arrangements. The songwriting chronicles the personal relationships that have come and gone and the rapidly changing world we live in. A lot can change in 6 years and while the sound has progressed, the recordings retain the fierce heartfelt core and quality Third Eye Blind fans new and old have come to love.
This winter will see the defining rock artists return to Europe after a series of hugely successful summer dates with Dashboard Confessional in America. The tour travels via Manchester to London before finishing up in Koln on the 9th November.
Full November tour dates below:
November 5th Manchester- The Academy 2*
November 6th London- The Forum*
November 8th Amsterdam – Milkweg
November 9th Koln Gebaeude 9

US praise for ‘Dopamine’:
“Jenkins remains a consistent and capable leader on ‘Dopamine’… Whichever incarnation of Third Eye Blind you prefer, this version is tight and 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
Dopamine is out now on iTunes.
Dopamine will be physically released in the UK on October 30th via the bands own Mega Collider Records. Physical and digital copies are available on request.
