Jimmy Eat World announce their return with three minutes of angry/heavy/furious/crunching/singalong rock + live date
Jimmy Eat World are to release their new single at the end of September, just two weeks before the release of their much anticipated new studio album. ‘Futures’, the band’s fifth album, is released on October 11 th and ‘Pain’ is a real signal of Jimmy Eat World’s intent to take their already cut-above-the-rest rock to the next level.
‘Pain’ comes in at an impressively short 2:51 with Jimmy Eat World pushing more feeling into three mintues than most bands manage in a whole album. The second singer Jim Adkins opens the track with the lyrics “I don’t feel the way I’ve ever felt”, while a edgy guitar chord paves the way for the huge drums and bass to kick in, it’s instantly recognisable as Jimmy Eat World, full of the emotion that the band are renowned for wearing on their sleeve.
It’s that ability to write songs that connect at an emotional level with their fans that helped the band to sell over 1.5 million copies in the US, and 100,000 in the UK of 2001’s ‘Jimmy Eat World’. It’s a record that’s held in great esteem by many fans and critics alike, receiving a rare 5K! review in Kerrang and leading to the tour on which the band sold out Brixton Academy and headlined the NME tent at Reading. New album ‘Futures’ will take the band’s reputation to the next level, both as songwriters of the highest calibre and as some of the coolest individuals in rock.
Musically, ‘Futures’ represents a creative peak for the band, with echoes of ‘Jimmy Eat World’, 1999’s ‘Clarity’ and 1996’s major label debut ‘Static Prevails’ combining to make the new album the band’s most enduring record to date.
The Phoenix-based four piece (completed by Tom Linton on guitar, Rick Burch on bass and Zach Lind on drums) have recently been playing a couple of warm up gigs of contrasting size. The first was an impromptu performance in a pub in their hometown, the other at the Fuji Rock festival in Japan.
Jimmy Eat World will be playing their first UK gig for a couple of years on September 23 rdat the Islington Academy, good news for their legion of UK fans who are waiting to hear the new material live.- 2. Medley 2 - -
