Today Jimmy Eat World announce details of their 10th studio album Surviving, due out on 18th October via The Orchard / RCA Records. The acclaimed Arizona four piece also reveal the first dates of Surviving, The Tour as well as a run of intimate UK shows for the week of album release.
Surviving promises to be the band’s most personal, ambitious album to date and front man Jim Adkins once again proves himself as one of the most prolific songwriters in the rock genre. As Adkins himself puts it, “Surviving explores some of the different kinds of weights my ego tells me I have to carry, what I see people around me choosing to carry and what I have found to be the truth when I choose to let go”.
Unveiled today, lead single “All The Way (Stay)” extolls the virtues of letting people discover the real you while exposing your vulnerabilities. As a heady rush of guitars give way to an irresistible middle-eight, Rachel Haden’s backing vocals and a saxophone solo lifted from the soundtrack of the-greatest-80’s-movie-John Hughes-never-made, ‘All The Way (Stay)” showcases the restless creative energy of a band at the peak of their powers.
The band also released a newly recorded version of ‘Love Never’. Originally released last year as a limited edition vinyl-only single, ‘Love Never’ pits the realities against the expectations of love, a classic slice of Jimmy Eat World wrapped up in a three minute rush of towering guitars and crashing drums.
The 10-track album, which was produced by the band and Integrity Blues producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen, is available for pre-order now. An exclusive white colored vinyl will also be available through Independent Record Stores and www.jimmyeatworld.com. Additional merch bundles can also be found on the band’s site.
