Posted by: Drew Beringer (06/03/13)
If you want to hear Jimmy Eat World's upcoming album, Damage, then you're gonna have to tweet a few times to get it.

I love JEW but this kinda of gimmick is ridiculous and unnecessary.

This is terrible. Especially because twitter keeps telling me not to re-tweet the same thing over and over again. How about I pre-ordered the thing and I want to listen to the stream?

Everything I have ever known about their attitude and outlook as a band makes the decision to reveal the album in this manner seem super weird.

No, but their management/label/whoever is telling them they do. We live in a pull media world (not push). If you're good enough, people will "pull" you out from the clutter and tell others (see: Daft Punk). Jimmy Eat World fans want to hear this and tell their friends about it, not re-tweet and bombard people with this info.

so the site glitched on me in a good way. i was able to listen to all the songs somehow and i have to say this record blew me away. probably the only ones im not crazy about are "howd you have me" and "no, never". but even those are really good. 9/10 for sure.

People, realize that JEW doesn't necessarily handle this aspect of their band. Odds are they have some marketing company or individual running this idea.

Keep in mind, they don't have to stream anything until the album drops next Tuesday. Consider this a bonus for those that are interested. Also, I'm all for thousands of tweets going out there to increase awareness that they have a new album dropping (even though I'm sure a lot of those tweets are going into a black hole from alt accounts).
