Third Eye Blind’s next album coming in October

“My current mood resonates with rebellion, energy, courage, and risk,” says Stephan Jenkins, on Third Eye Blind’s sixth full length album, Screamer, due out Oct. 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.”

Hear the title track "Screamer" available on all streaming services now.

Best known for the 1990s alt-rock hits "Semi Charmed Life," "How's it Gonna Be," "Graduate," "Jumper" and "Never Let You Go," is still anchored by core members Jenkins on vocals and Brad Hargreaves on drums.

Their follow up to 2018’s EP Thanks for Everything, Screamer finds Third Eye Blind collaborating with Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells (“Screamer”), Poliça (“Who Am I” and “Got So High”), with 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.”

The current tour alongside Jimmy Eat World and Ra Ra Riot will wrap Aug. 3 in Irvine, CA. 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.”
