OK boys and girls, the latest album from Jimmy Eat World is out and is definitely worth a listen! Big Casino, the opening track, gives you an immediate sense that you’re onto something good. Sorry about the ‘clip’ or lack there of, but give it a go. Simon Says.
As of September 29th, 2007, “Chase This Light” had been leaked onto the internet in full. Jim has stated, on the Jimmy Eat World website that “Chase This Light” would be officially released on October 16th, 2007.
Jimmy Eat World was formed in Mesa, Arizona in 1993. Singer/guitarist Jim Adkins and drummer Zach Lind, who had been friends since kindergarten, joined forces with guitarist Tom Linton and bass player Mitch Porter to try their hand at music.
The name Jimmy Eat World did not refer to lead singer Jim Adkins. Tom Linton’s younger siblings, Ed and Jimmy, fought constantly when they were younger. Jimmy, who was stronger and heavier, would usually win. In one instance, Ed, as revenge, drew a picture with crayons of Jimmy shoving the entire world into his gaping mouth with the caption, “Jimmy eat world.”
