Jimmy Eat World Gearing Up To Record Next Album

Jimmy Eat World are at a comfortable stage in the making of their next album – the middle.

The Mesa, Arizona, rockers are about finished with the writing and are gearing up to hit the studio soon.

“We have a sh-load of new songs and they’re just kind of awaiting the editing process,” singer Jim Adkins said at last week’s ASCAP Pop Music Awards. “Realistically, we’ll be maybe making a new record for real in the summer.”

Jimmy Eat World will again record in a Los Angeles studio with Mark Trombino (Blink-182, Finch), who produced the group’s previous three albums.

“It’s a lot of rock and it’s a lot of melodies,” bassist Rick Burch said of the new material. “It’s really varied right now. We gotta narrow it down and focus it.”

The success of Jimmy Eat World’s self-titled third album, which included the hits “The Middle,” “Sweetness” and “Bleed American”, will not affect the band’s approach to music.

“We’re trying to not think about it and just focus on the songs and just do what we do,” Adkins said.
