The US rockers, best known for hits such as Semi-Charmed Life and Never Let You Go, will play London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire in May.

Their new album, Ursa Major, has already been released in the USA to widespread critical and commercial acclaim, and charting at No 1 in the Billboard Alternative charts and a career best No 3 in the Billboard top 100.

Third Eye Blind’s European tour dates are (all May 2010):

The London show tickets are priced at £16.50 (subject to booking fee) and are available from Friday, January 29. Doors are at 7pm and Third Eye Blind are onstage at 9pm.

Third Eye Blind blasted out of San Francisco when Semi-Charmed Life went to # 1 at Modern Rock and their self-titled album sold 6 million copies worldwide in 1997.

This debut album contained several other chart-topping singles such as Jumper, How’s It Going To Be, Graduate and others cementing the band’s place in music history.

The unique combination of brutal and controversial lyrics mixed with infectious melodies made an indelible connection with fans – it’s a phenomenon that defines Third Eye Blind and has made them the most requested band on college campuses going on three years now.

Yes, this band’s audience keeps getting younger. The band’s song Jumper was recently used in Jim Carrey’s movie Yes Man and regularly sells over 5,000 singles a week, 10 years after its release.
