Jimkata Announces Summer 2013 Tour & Releases New Video

Article Contributed by Brotherly Love… | Published on Thursday, April 25, 2013

Jimkata has announced dates for their Summer 2013 tour along with several festival appearances including Summer Camp, Gathering of the Vibes and Catskill Chill. The band has also released a video for Die Digital’s catchy hit electro-pop single, “Chain Store.” Coming off a Winter Tour that took the Ithaca, NY-based four-piece to 20 states and landed them a feature on the critically acclaimed music blog Daytrotter, Jimkata is currently working on a live album set for release in the Fall of 2013.

Now touring to support their innovative, fan-funded record Die Digital, Jimkata has been a mainstay of the Northeast for years. Recent traction stemming from the rise of electronic dance music (EDM) has afforded them the opportunity to continue expanding their signature brand of song-oriented electro-rock. Analog synthesizers and heavy bass notes fill the electronic role, while big guitars create space for shredding within the structure of pure indie rock. Over the years they have consistently backed up their reputation for creating high-energy dance parties at such music festivals as Summer Camp, Camp Bisco, and Mountain Jam. For Jimkata fans, however, the show doesn't end when the lights come up. Jimkata’s relevant, quotable lyrics create music not just for the fleeting moments, but for the lifestyle of an entire generation. Listen to Die Digital on Spotify or download it on iTunes.
