“…The crux of the decision is; Am I going to do something different or am I going to continue even though I hate who I am right now? That’s the difference between surviving and truly living.” That’s the point of the songs on SURVIVING.”
– Jim Adkins.
Jimmy Eat World recorded the 10-track set mostly in their home studio, working again with co-producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen, their partner on 2016’s INTEGRITY BLUES. The result is punchy, dynamically explosive & amp; hearkens back to the heavy yet crafted melodic edge that woke the world up to Jimmy Eat World a quarter century ago.
There’s plenty of guitar rock on SURVIVING, from the blast off of the title track through the ferocity of “Criminal Energy,” “All the Way (Stay)” and “Love Never” and the gritty, propulsive grind of “Diamond.” Vibey tracks such as “Delivery,” “Recommit” and the lushly majestic “555” expand the album’s sonic scope, meanwhile, “One Mil” alternates between pretty acoustic verses and anthemic, stadium-caliber choruses.
