The Band Will Launch A Summer Tour The Same Day

LOS ANGELES - Third Eye Blind will celebrate the 20-year anniversary of its eponymous debut this summer with an expanded version of the multi-platinum album that includes several unreleased recordings. The band will also headline an extensive North American tour that begins on June 9 in Miami where the band will play the celebrated album in its entirety throughout the tour.

On the same day that the tour begins, Rhino will release multiple versions of THIRD EYE BLIND: 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION, including a double-CD set ($19.98), a three-LP collection presented in a gatefold sleeve ($44.98), and digitally.

All versions combine the original album with several unreleased demos and new recordings. For this special anniversary edition, the band recently recorded "Alright Caroline" and "Scattered," two songs that were written for the Third Eye Blind album, but were never fully realized in the studio until now.

3eb made a splash in 1997 when the San Francisco alt-rockers scored a #1 Modern Rock hit with the group's debut single, "Semi-Charmed Life." Later that year, it was named Modern Rock Track of the Year at the Billboard Music Awards.

Third Eye Blind spent more than 100 weeks on the Billboard 200 Chart and has been certified six-times platinum in the U.S. by the RIAA. In addition to "Semi-Charmed Life," the album boasted several more major hits: "Graduate," "How's It Going To Be," "Losing A Whole Year" and "Jumper."

THIRD EYE BLIND: 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION features unreleased demos for the album track "Semi-Charmed Life" and "Kiss Goodnight," which was later reworked as "Ode To Maybe" for the band's sophomore album, Blue (1999). Also included is the band's cover of the Velvet Underground classic "Heroin," as well as an early version of "Slow Motion" that includes the song's lyrics. The controversial track about the media's glorification of violence was released as an instrumental on Blue. A full version with lyrics did not surface until 2006, when it appeared on A Collection, a greatest hits compilation released by Rhino.
