Following up with their 2010 album Invented, Jimmy Eat World will be releasing their album Damage on June 11 via RCA. The title track was produced by Alain Johannes, who has worked with Queens of the Stone Age and more recently Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players, and was recorded at Johannes’ home studio in Los Angeles.
Jim Adkins of the band had this to say to Rolling Stone about the new album
“I hate saying more raw, but it’s more raw and warm. We just set up all around Alain’s house. There were instruments in his bedroom and drums in his living room. Just noise all day long. There was less an emphasis on it being clean and perfect. There’s a lot of stuff that’s more about the performance than it sounding pristine. And I think it feels better for what the songs are.”
Though no lead single has yet been announced, the band will release the title track on 7″, along with a cover of Radiohead’s “Stop Whispering” as the b-side, for Record Store Day. Along with their press release was the tracklisting for Damage, which can be seen below.
