Jim Adkins Talks New Jimmy Eat World Album

Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World talked with Rocksound about the band’s upcoming album:

For me, what I felt was something interesting to explore was how every moment of your existence you have a choice between continuing what you’re doing, and doing something different. There is always resistance in doing something new. If you feel anxiety or depression or general dissatisfaction in whatever your personal condition is like, it’s really strange that there’s still resistance to deviating from that. To explore that, you really have to come to a present choice – that’s the difference between existing and truly living. Like I say in the song, ‘You can survive but not exactly live’. It’s like anything would be better than what I’m doing right now, but I’m too afraid to change it. It’s not a natural response for us to change

What We Know About Jimmy Eat World’s Upcoming Album

Various retailers have had a new album from Jimmy Eat World pop-up called Surviving and due out October 18th. There’s also a new interview with Jim Adkins in Kerrang! talking about the album:

And this is the first time he’ll be do­ing so with any­one any­where about the ev­er­green quar­tet’s new al­bum, Sur­viv­ing (due out on Oc­to­ber 18 via The Or­chard/rca). You can’t half tell, as the front­man ex­cit­edly rattles through the in­spi­ra­tions, mean­ings and the se­crets be­hind the lat­est col­lec­tion of songs he and the band have poured ev­ery ounce of their ev­ery­thing into. It turns out there’s a lot to learn, as Jim gets into the core of the record’s pol­i­tics, its themes of hope and hope­less­ness, the un­der­ly­ing in­se­cu­ri­ties that in­form its out­look and ev­ery­thing from high-con­cept phi­los­o­phy to sax­o­phone so­los. The black cof­fee is very much re­quired for this one…

Jimmy Eat World Talk With Alt Press

Jim Adkins and Rick Burch of Jimmy Eat World sat down with Alternative Press to talk about the band and their future:

Adkins agrees. “I think that’s one of the reasons it takes us about three years in between our albums. You want to make sure that what you have is your absolute best. If you’re just trying new stuff out, after a while there’s not a life in between that.”
