After spending the last few weeks touring Europe promoting their sixth full-length album, Invented, anthemic rockers Jimmy Eat World will return to the US to tour in December, including a stop at Conan on December 13th to perform their latest single, “Coffee and Cigarettes.” The band wraps up 2010 and rings in the New Year with a performance at the Fiesta Bowl Block Party. It’s the perfect way for the band to complete a successful year that spawned a Billboard top 10 single, one of the band’s most critically acclaimed albums, late-night spots on Letterman, The Tonight Show and Carson Daly, as well as sold out tour dates across America and Europe. The band will kick off 2011 with additional US tour dates in January and February and then head to Japan, Australia and New Zealand. (all tour dates below)

Jimmy Eat World have sold millions of albums over the course of their career, garnering attention from critics and gaining fans around the world. For Invented, the band reunited with producer Mark Trombino, who served as producer on seminal Jimmy Eat World albums Clarity and Bleed American. Critics have noticed the re-energized nature of Invented, with the New York Times noting that “Jimmy Eat World…has been broadening its music for more than a decade. It also plays power ballads, heartland rock, U2-like anthems and, in songs like the new “Action Needs an Audience,” grunge.” The Denver Post put it most succinctly, claiming Invented to be “one of [Jimmy Eat World's] best.”

Joining together in the fight against children’s cancers, The Pablove Foundation and indie label Dangerbird Records are once again collaborating to present a benefit concert at Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee, WI on Saturday, January 29th, 2011. This special evening of music will feature a rare, acoustic headlining set from Brian Aubert and Nikki Monninger of Dangerbird’s own Silversun Pickups, along with performances from their labelmates Fitz & The Tantrums and Maritime. Additional entertainment includes an unplugged set from Goran (of The Gufs) as well as Milwaukee’s Jaill, Cory Chisel, Rusty Ps and Prophetic with DJ Madhatter, Juniper Tar and Bascom Hill. All proceeds directly benefit Pablove’s mission to fund pediatric cancer research and advances in treatment, as well as to educate and empower families affected by the disease, while improving the quality of life for children living with cancer.
Tickets for the January 29 concert go on sale on Friday, December 3 at 12 noon CDT, and can be purchased at www.pabsttheater.org for $25.00 (adults) and $10.00 (children under 12 years old). Limited VIP seating is available for $50.00. Doors open at 5:00pm, and the show starts at 5:30 pm.

The concert will coincide with the announcement of the third annual Pablove Across America (PAA) cross-country charity bike ride in 2011. Dangerbird/Pablove CEO and Co-Founder Jeff Castelaz will be in attendance to unveil the ride schedule and route from Milwaukee to New Orleans. Castelaz, a Milwaukee native, recently completed the second PAA ride. The group of cyclists rode 1,425 miles from Seattle to Los Angeles in October and donated to children’s hospitals in Seattle, Portland, Palo Alto, and Los Angeles along the way. In fall 2009, the inaugural PAA covered 3,100 miles from St. Augustine, FL to Los Angeles, and included the participation of cycling champion Lance Armstrong. These experiences led to Castelaz being featured as Person of the Week on ABC Nightly News in November 2009. To date, the first and second Pablove Across America rides have raised a combined total of $1.1 million.

The Pablove Foundation was founded in May 2008 by Castelaz and his wife Jo Ann Thrailkill after their four-year-old son Pablo Castelaz was diagnosed with bilateral Wilms Tumor, a rare form of childhood cancer. After a valiant fight against the disease, Pablo passed away just six days past his sixth birthday on June 27, 2009. Imbued with his spirit and inspired by his strength, The Pablove Foundation is dedicated to the daily, global fight against childhood cancer and the suffering that comes in its wake. The Pablove Foundation’s scientific advisory committee is comprised of the brightest minds in the pediatric cancer field, including doctors and researchers from Harvard, Duke, University of Michigan, USC, City of Hope and others. The foundation recently disclosed details of two $50,000 research grants that The Pablove Foundation will award for childhood cancer research in 2011.

Pablove’s ongoing efforts to raise funds and awareness are detailed at pablove.org, and on Facebook and Twitter.
