It appears that the first single from Jimmy Eat World's forthcoming album, Chase The Light, will be "Big Casino" and should impact radio mid-August. The band's July 25th show that took place in Chicago, IL is available for download here.
So, exactly ten days from today, I will be interviewing this little up and coming band named Jimmy Eat World. Perhaps you have heard of them? Leave some questions you'd like to see asked in the replies, and I will choose the best ones to ask the band - you know how I do it.
Despite what was said in Alternative Press' "Most Anticipated of 2007" issue, Jimmy Eat World's new album will not be coming out in February. However, the band is just finishing up a few things and are almost done recording the follow-up to 2004's Futures. Rumor has it a tenative title for the release is Chase This Light.
You thought artist development was just for label weasels? You're wrong. Loren Israel has been doing it for years. He started out at Capitol and went on to discover and develop the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Less Than Jake, Plain White T's, and Rock Kills Kid, among many others. Luke Wood (AFI, Brand New, All American Rejects) seems to like what Loren has done - He just signed upstarts Midnight Hour to Interscope records. Check out Loren's "Band Boot Camp" on MySpace and learn the ropes of the industry. Watch the video and listen to testimonials - Loren is the real deal.
