Few bands of the alt/rock/emo scene of the past 20 or so years have remained as true to themselves as Jimmy Eat World, bona fide “survivors” of the era.
On Oct. 18, the Arizona-based four-piece will release its tenth studio album, Surviving, which was officially announced on Monday. In addition to the album news, the band premiered a new song, “All the Way (Stay),” a guitar-driven anthem that puts the band’s best qualities on display … and even features an unexpected saxophone solo!
The band also premiered a remixed version of the song “Love Never,” which previously existed as a special 7″ vinyl single released last year.
Said vocalist/guitarist Jim Adkins in a statement about the album:
“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”.
Surviving was produced by the band alongside esteemed producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen, who also worked with the band on 2016’s Integrity Blues.
