“Sweet glory comin down to take me off the ground and I don’t know where I’m goin, but I’m not goin down.” . Die Digital turns 6 today!! This was our first fan funded record and a turning point for us in terms of production, leading to a lot of discoveries on blending electronic production and live instrumentation. At the time I feel like I was reflecting a lot on moving through life in this new digital age of social media and the ways it was changing us all. It was an exciting studio session that led to an album whose message feels more relevant than ever and continues to gain new fans every day. . - Evan .

Hillview Place, Ithaca NY, Summer ‘07. Every member of the band had lived in this house (now owned by Russ) at one point although this year was the only one Packy, Evan, and Aaron all lived on the same floor at the same time. All songs from the Self Titled through Feel in Light were conceived and workshopped in the basement of this continually creative household! Time really does fly... #tbt
And you could have stayed home with all the paperweights of your past. You could have stayed home with all the Ghosts & Killers. . Released 8 years ago today! Link in bio . . .

To our beloved fans: After several years of touring and putting out albums we have decided to put Jimkata on hold indefinitely. We're not sure for how long we just know that this is the right decision for the moment. At the end of last year, we found ourselves at another turning point in our career and decided that instead of pushing forward it would be best to focus on other projects and our own individual lives for a while. This has been a wild ride (pun intended) that all of us are grateful to have experienced. At times it has felt like floating on an immense wave of energy and at other times like pushing a boulder up a mountain. We're extremely grateful for anyone whose lives were touched by our music, anyone who came to the shows, supported our recording efforts, gave us a sweaty hug, offered us a home for the night, bought a t-shirt, shared a meaningful story with us (of which there are so many we've taken to heart) or for any other incredible or ridiculous moment we shared with you. Its impossible to sum up our gratitude or to neatly summarize our vast treasure trove of both good and occasionally shitty memories. Its a very vulnerable thing to create music and share it with the world, not knowing how it will be received. For it to have been received with love and passion all these years is an honor. And to have existed as an independent band supported by friends, fans, and family for ten years feels like a privilege regardless of any challenges we've faced. But in short, we've busted our ass, given it our all, and for now we're gonna take a step back and bust our ass in other directions. We look forward to staying connected with you and hope to hear from you as we pursue new musical projects. This is not the end of the music, but it is the end of this particular chapter of Jimkata. THANK YOU - Evan, Packy & Aaron Of course we will be doing a few shows to send this off in style... Hope to see you out there!!! 10/19 - Rochester - Flour City Station 10/20 - Buffalo - Iron Works 10/21 - Syracuse - Westcott Theater 10/26 - Albany - The Hollow 10/27 - Manchester, CT - The Main Pub 10/28 - NYC - American Beauty
Excited to announce we will be returning to one of our favorite places @nightlightsfest August 24-26th! Limited number of $99 advance tickets on sale now at nightlightsfest.com so scoop yours and we will see you there!

Wrapping up 10 shows in 11 nights through the southeast tonight in Greenville, NC. Just like any run, there has been a nightly set of challenges and triumphs, attempts and fails, risks and rewards, along with all the other curveballs 2016 has provided us. It's hard to not feel like it's a totally different country now than when we left, but as we keep looking forward we will continue to spread the message of positivity through music and hope that you will join us for the ride! See you soon @crossbones_tavern!! #tourlife #inmotion #greenvillenc #musicheals
