Jimmy Eat World has premiered a new single called “Something Loud.”
The track, the first new Jimmy Eat World tune in three years, was partly inspired by the huge reaction to the lineup for this October’s When We Were Young festival, which “The Middle” rockers will play alongside bands that include My Chemical Romance, Paramore, A Day to Remember, Avril Lavigne, Bring Me the Horizon and Dashboard Confessional.
“While I thought I made the most of the early band days, I realize now I missed some stuff,” says frontman Jim Adkins.
“You’re in such a hurry to grow out of the formidable years,” he continues. “Like s***-togetherness is going to magically arrive when you hit some age you thought ‘grownups’ were. Yeah, it doesn’t work that way. But maybe the thing age and experience do reveal is that pivotal moments are hard to grasp when you are in them.”
Ahead of When We Were Young, Jimmy Eat World will launch a headlining U.S. tour in September.
