Jimmy Eat World and Manchester Orchestra launch a co-headlining tour next month, and to celebrate, they’ve released covers of each other’s songs.
“Manchester Orchestra is great at sitting you down, spinning your chair around and stopping it to show you are now somewhere else,” says Jimmy’s Jim Adkins. “We knew if we were going to cover an immersive song like ‘Telepath,’ we’d have to commit to ‘stopping the chair’ at bizzaro-Jimmy Eat World universe.”
“It was an absolute honor to trade covers with one of our favorite bands,” adds Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull. “We approached our cover with admiration for the original and had a blast exploring all of its spacious corners.”
Jimmy Eat World and Manchester Orchestra’s co-headlining tour launches July 11 in Missoula, Montana.
