Jimmy Eat World continue the 2020 roadshow in support of their “bold, brave and ultimately defiant” (NME)10thstudio album, Surviving (listen here). With 10 records to pull from, the sets will prove to satisfy all fans new and old.
“Whether we’ve slept on your floor after the ‘97 basement show or you’ve just only recently heard about us, we will have something you’d be into catching live,” the band said in a statement.
The Front Bottoms recently returned with “Camouflage,” a standalone single teasing a larger body of work on the horizon in 2020. The FADER declared the song, “…a celebration of sorts for a band perennially on the fringes of a major breakthrough.”
The Front Bottoms’ Brian Sella and Mathew Uychich shared a note to fans alongside the new track explaining, “We spent a lot of the last year reflecting. There was a lot to think about, a lot to stress about, and a lot to be happy about. We feel lucky about it all, but it’s getting hard to separate real life and the music, or tell which parts even belong to us and which parts belong to you. That’s the best though.
We retreated for a while, learned some stuff, then came back and learned some more. You definitely learn more when you’re around the people you love and the people you care about. We made new stuff, lots of art, all different kinds of stuff, some of which will hopefully never leave our heads. A meditation practice, breathing exercises… life is crazy. New song.”
