Jimmy Eat World close to finishing new album

The follow-up to 2004’s ‘Futures’ is on the way

Jimmy Eat World are close to completion of their first album in three years.

The band recorded the follow-up to 2004’s ‘Futures’ at their rehearsal space in Tempe, Arizona, and have been working with famed producer and Garbage member Butch Vig on the record.

Speaking to Billboard, Vig revealed: “The record is quite eclectic. There are three or four songs that sound like classic Jimmy Eat World, with angular, razor-sharp guitars. There are a couple that are a lot more dreamy, and some that are very groove-acious. Anybody who is fan will like this record.”


Tracks on the as-yet untitled album are reported to include ‘Big Casino’[b/], ’Be Sensible’ and ‘Firefight’. It is set for a summer release.
