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.

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

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…

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.”
