What's Jimmy Eat World Up To?

Posted by - 04:02 PM on 01/18/12
Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World recently posted on their official forum with some updates about the band.
From the Post'new eyeing'. huh? no idea where that rumor came from. i sort of like it though. as a title what the hell could that be about? no, our next album is not (yet) called new eyeing. suggestions are welcome though. maybe someone can start an album title suggestion thread?

we are writing and working out new material now. being off the road and home for holidays has kind of made us really get into being home. for real, home. and i predict this will help our new stuff get put together faster. it is important to us to have material we are proud of. hopefully that can happen soon, as we have no idea how we may release the next batch. i would assume that when the time comes we will make a carefully thought out decision. but as i have always said, we have to be proud of it first. however long that takes.

the main reason we have been allowed to be a band for as long as we have is because we aren't chasing some imagined demographic. we are simply working to challenge and reward ourselves through music.

not seeing any reason to alter that now.

hope everyone is having a great wind-down for the year. going to post up my favorite music from 2011 soon.

jim

Reading between the lines, I don't anticipate a new album this year. Hey, they are getting older. They can do what they want, and they should spend more time at home- it's admirable.

i feel that their next album will follow what they did on Invented. i wish they would, but i'm almost sure they won't return to the darker, heavier days of Futures. they're my absolute favorite band, but Invented and Chase This Light didn't stick to me like the four other did (even though both are absolutely wonderful albums) and i'm afraid the next one won't too.
i reckon it's still gonna be something really amazing, i just wish it is something that gets me going for the whole year.

I hope we get a new album this year. Invented was a great album, in my opinion. But hey, I love everything they do.

Always excited for new JEW. Very rarely am I let down. Invented was pretty spectacular but I've been having a hard time getting back into it after taking a break from it.

If I was going to be a band, I'd want to be Jimmy Eat World. I'm glad they're getting some "me" time. Take all the time you guys need. I'll be ready to listen when they're ready to share.
