Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of catching Jimmy Eat World on their 10 year anniversary tour for Futures in Kansas City. Check out my review of the night in the replies.
Although the tour wouldn't be hitting St. Louis, there was no question that I would be making the trek out to Kansas City to catch the band on their 10 year anniversary tour of the album that changed my life so many years ago. I had caught the band once before a few years back, and to say they put on a great live show would be a massive understatement. Couple that with the fact that Futures would be performed front to back, and a four hour drive both ways to Kansas City seemed more than worth it.

Check out a blog post about that Jimmy Eat World Futures beer. Want.
That pint of beer that Rick and I shared became 2 and 3 pints, but what really came out of that invigorating conversation was a spark. An idea. A desire to change the future. We wanted to make a beer that highlighted a bands 10 year album release, Arizona agriculture, and just plain Arizona. We wanted 10 AZ ingredients and most importantly, we wanted to give the profits to organizations who would greatly benefit our community. When Jim, Tom, Zach, and Rick walked through our brewery doors this morning, the energy was high, and the passion was endless. We talked about our charity choices, and how excited we are to...

The AV Club's year-long article series Fear of a Punk Decade has finally made it's way to 1999, and the article details the rightfully praised Jimmy Eat World masterpiece, Clarity (among other 1999 albums). Check it out and leave your thoughts on both that year in punk and the album in the replies.
Being from Denver, I felt an extra sting when I heard Clarity’s obvious ploy for radio play, the single “Lucky Denver Mint.” At the same time, I had to admit, “What a goddamn song.” It’s as if Joshua Tree-era U2 had somehow mated with all my favorite melodic emo bands of the ’90s, from Christie Front Drive to Texas Is The Reason. The difference was, most of those bands had hit a brick wall,...

In a recent article, Rick Burch of Jimmy Eat World, revealed they'll be trying to release earlier material and singles on vinyl in the near future.
Burch said the members of Jimmy Eat World are now working on re-releasing some of their early singles and albums in a different format to satisfy younger fans. Yep, Jimmy Eat World has been around long enough to have young adult fans just now discovering their sound. The format for the re-releases won’t be mp3, but vinyl LP disc. In rock and roll, everything comes around again if its coolness quotient transcends the hipness du jour. Hence Jimmy Eat World as a vinyl band for millennial listeners.

The AV Club has a long form article series about punk in the 90's, and today's article is about the year 1997. Bands discussed include a pre-fame Jimmy Eat World, a Glen Danzig-less Misfits and, of course, Blink-182. Good lunch time reading, for sure.
In 1997—as I was reminded the hard way at the Blink-182/Jimmy Eat World show at the Mercury—much of the punk scene was still fragmented, confused, and resistant to new things. Not for long, though. And a newfound willingness to evolve was about to hit the punk scene in an earth-shaking way.

Chris Payne of Billboard sat down with a variety of artists to preview the upcoming MLB season. Jimmy Eat World talk the Diamondbacks, The Hold Steady talk the Twins, and Dropkick Murphys talk the Red Sox.
I played up until my senior year. I quit because in my junior year I started dealing with some nagging injuries and I wasn't having that much fun. And that's when Jimmy Eat World were getting together and playing. I quit and left the baseball field to practice [with] Jimmy Eat World and haven't played since. I've been [with] Jimmy Eat World for the past 20 years.

Jimmy Eat World bassist Rick Burch is looking to open a microdistillery in Arizona.
CaskWerks Distilling Co. is the collective vision of its founders Rick Burch, John Miller and Jeff Barlow. We are three guys with vastly different backgrounds and a passion for small batch, artisan spirits. Individually we have tried to chase this dream for several years however, as a team is where our strength comes from. Our goal is to bring a fresh, local perspective to a very old and established industry. With the support of people like you, we can bring a small piece of the artisan spirits renaissance to the Phoenix area by giving you an up close and personal look at the process.

Podcasting is easy when you get to talk shop with one of your all-time favorite musicians. And on the 17th episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast, Jason and I got to do just that when we sat down with Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World. We talk about the band’s recent tour, recording and releasing Damage (the band's latest album), and the mindset behind why the band tries to write for themselves — not critics.

You can subscribe to this podcast in a variety of ways: via iTunes, your own RSS feed (instructions below), or streaming/downloading the mp3 in the replies. You can also find our previous episodes on iTunes and SoundCloud. As always, we hope you enjoy.

More on that, and so much more, in the upcoming episode.

Our interview with Jimmy Eat World can be found here.
Many writing and recording musicians write based on trying to chase a particular listener, chase the approval of somebody besides yourself, whether that person is a radio programmer, a quote unquote “fan,” or the 18-25 demographic. When you start chasing the approval of some completely unknown, unquantifiable listener, then you’re going to end up with something that you’re not going to be proud of. It’s not going to be rewarding. It’s not going to feel good for you to put your name on. Is there a single? Is there not a single? Who’s going to like this record? Are your fans going to like this record? Is anybody going to like...
