Jimmy Eat World returns this summer with the release of their new album Damage. Due out June 11th, the follow-up to 2010’s Invented marks the seventh studio effort to date and their first with RCA following a longtime relationship with Interscope.
“As you get older it’s more interesting to have a theme that everything tries to support I would say this album has a theme,” singer-songwriter Jim Adkins told Rolling Stone. “I would describe it as an attempt at making an adult breakup record. The consequences to what the characters are going through are more significant.”
The album was recorded last year on both tape and computer at producer Alain Johannes’ Los Angeles home. Adkins calls it a “raw and warm” effort and that “there was less an emphasis on it being clean and perfect.”
In anticipation, the band’s issuing an exclusive 7″ single for Record Store Day that includes the album’s title track and a cover of Radiohead’s oft-forgotten Pablo Honey single, “Stop Whispering”.
