Arizona-based alt/punk/emo band Jimmy Eat World recently returned with a new track, the guitar-forward “Something Loud.”

An aptly titled burst of energy, the song showcases the group’s knack for compelling songwriting, front man Jim Adkins leading the way as always with his passionate vocals and thoughtful lyrical approach.

A news release mentions that Jimmy Eat World was particularly reinvigorated by the excitement that came with the announcement of Live Nation’s When We Were Young Festival, the throwback concert event featuring a number of heavy hitters of the punk/emo/Warped Tour scene of the early 2000s, set to gather in Las Vegas this October (including Jimmy Eat World). Intense online enthusiasm over the initial festival announcement spawned additional dates and, per the release, “triggered a period of deep personal and professional reflection”:

“While I thought I made the most of the early band days, I realize now I missed some stuff,” said Adkins. “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 most recent Jimmy Eat World album was 2019’s Surviving. “Something Loud” was produced by the band and acclaimed producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen, and looks to be a preview of the next chapter for the group.
