Jimmy Eat World Releasing New Album
Despite not having a record label at the time, the alternative radio darlings began recording the album last August. According to frontman Jim Adkins, the band went back and fourth with a few labels and "very recently" signed with RCA. Damage was produced by Jimmy Eat World and Alain Johannes, known for work with Mark Lanegan and Chris Cornell, while mixing was performed by James Brown, who recently worked on Dave Grohl's Sound City album.
"I think we're really proud of the record," Adkins told Rolling Stone. "It's something we put a lot of work into and we really wanted to get right, whatever that meant for the song. I don't think it's that dissimilar to things we've done in the past." Adkins described the album as an "adult breakup record." more on this story
