Hands up if you thought we’d be getting a new Jimmy Eat World album next month. Yeah, that’s what we thought. Surprising fans all over the world, today the longtime alternative act has just announced the release of their 10th studio album.
Titled Surviving, Jimmy Eat World’s new 10-track effort will be the band’s first since 2016′s Integrity Blues.
Talking about the new release which will be available October 18th, singer/guitarist Jim Adkins said:
“… I realize that I wouldn’t be who I am today unless everything happened exactly the way it did. I can listen back to our records and hear that maybe I was trying to tell myself some things before… but didn’t really want to let them in.
Our 1999 album was called CLARITY, but I really wasn’t on a quest for clarity when we put that out.
The crux of the decision is ‘Am I going to do something different or am I going to continue even though I hate who I am right now?’ That’s the difference between surviving and truly living. That’s the point of the songs on SURVIVING.“
Giving fans their first look at Surviving, Jimmy Eat World has also shared a brand new single titled “All The Way” as well as a re-recorded version of “Love Never.”
