"Something Loud" harkens back to the band's early sound and isn't just a clever name

The emo revival has been going strong for a while, but it hasn’t been complete without one of its biggest names. Now, Jimmy Eat World, who announced a lengthy tour a few weeks ago, are back with their first new single since the release of 2019’s Surviving. The song, titled “Something Loud,” is classic Jimmy Eat World. The song sees the Arizona return to their powerful and accessible brand of rock.

Singer Jim Adkins said in a release that as he saw the excitement rising for this fall’s When We Were Young Festival that will feature the giants of emo taking over Las Vegas, it inspired him to think of the band’s early years.

“While I thought I made the most of the early band days, I realize now I missed some stuff,” Adkins said in a statement. “You’re in such a hurry to grow out of the formidable years. Like shit-togetherness is going to magically arrive when you hit some age you thought ‘grownups’ were. Yeah, it doesn’t work that way. But maybe the thing age and experience do reveal is that pivotal moments are hard to grasp when you are in them.”

The band also has a new album on the way, which is produced by the band along with Justin Meldel-Johnson
