Damage (Jimmy Eat World album)
Damage is the eighth studio album by American rock band Jimmy Eat World, released on June 11, 2013, on RCA Records. Described as "an attempt at making an adult breakup record", the album was produced by regular Queens of the Stone Age collaborator Alain Johannes, was preceded by the singles "I Will Steal You Back" and "Damage". Released to favorable reviews, Damage reached number 14 on the Billboard 200 and 38 on the UK Albums Chart. In March 2012, vocalist and guitarist Jim Adkins performed a solo show where he debuted two new songs, "Book of Love" and "You Were Good". In July, drummer Zach Lind revealed that the group were going to record a new record in a month's time. On September 5, the group announced they had begun recording, on October 5, announced they had finished and were waiting to mix the recordings. On November 20, the group revealed they were done with mixing, on November 30, said the process was done. Damage was recorded with producer Alain Johannes. Unlike the band's previous two studio albums, Chase This Light and Invented, which were both recorded at the band's rehearsal space in Arizona, the album was recorded at Johannes' home on both analog tape and Pro Tools.
Regarding the recording process, Adkins stated: "We used tape for the first time in a long time, as well as computer. I hate saying more raw. 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 perfect. There's a lot of stuff, and I think it feels better for what the songs are." Regarding Johannes' contributions, Adkins stated: "He's an amazing solo artist. We met he just had the best ideas. For what we wanted to do he felt like the right guy. We have a better idea of what we want now, so we didn't need someone, heavy-handed. We wanted someone to be more like a partner, an ideas guy with fresh ears." Jimmy Eat World began writing Damage in early 2012, with Adkins noting: "I think with Invented an outline that it would be themed around. Not a subject, but we had a direction before we wrote it; as you get older it's more interesting to have a theme that everything tries to support – I would say this album has a theme.
I would describe it as an attempt at making an adult breakup record. The consequences to what the characters are going through are more significant. There's just more to it. I'm 37 and the world around me is a lot different than when I was writing breakup songs in my 20s. I tried to reflect that in what the lyrics are." Adkins elaborated: "With Damage the point was love songs. But the type of love songs that interest me deal with emotional injury. If you have a happy song about how happy you are, I just want to slap you. There's no story there for me. I can't have any empathy."Adkins compared the process of writing the album's lyrics to that of the band's third studio album, stating: "It's similar to because that's how I approached a lot of emotional things in those days. It's the observation and experience of the world around you, you develop the ideas from that. It's similar to how I worked on the material for Damage because I'm asking myself the same kinds of questions about things, it's just that I'm in a different place in life, a different environment."Regarding the album's stripped-back closing track, "You Were Good", Adkins stated: "A fair amount of the ideas for Damage started out as acoustic songs, like rough acoustic songs.'You Were Good' started out in a pretty acoustic-based world and when we tried to take it out of that world, we realized that without the acoustic guitar in there as a bed, it didn't feel the same without it being there.
With'You Were Good', we experimented around a little bit with fleshing it out and building the dynamics of it in a full band sense, but at the end of the day we all looked at each other and agreed it sounded better with just me and a guitar and the weirdo, Indian drone thing on there." Guitarist and backing vocalist Tom Linton elaborated: "It was just with an acoustic guitar and his vocals, there was never a point where he stopped and started over. He just played it from the beginning to the end live. I overdubbed an organ part and Alain played the guitar part; that was fun to do, I don't think we had done it before with vocals." On April 3, 2013, Damage was announced for release in June. In addition, the album's track listing and artwork were revealed. "I Will Steal You Back" was made available for streaming on April 10. It was released on April 16, released to radio the same day; the following day, a lyric video was released. On April 20, the group released a 7" vinyl for Record Store Day, it featured "Damage" and a cover of the Radiohead track, "Stop Whispering".
In May, the group embarked on a brief US tour, dubbed the Arizona "Home-State" Tour. On May 31, a music video was released for "I Will Steal You Back". Damage was made available for streaming on June 3 through the group's website, before being released on June 11 through RCA Records. Regarding the label, Adkins noted: "There's a lot of people there we've just crossed paths with over the years and who have been supportive of us if they didn't have a stake in how our records did. It's an interesting time. It's our best educated guess on where we feel comfortable being."Linton stated: " we just toured, saved up all of our money and were able to save up enough money to record by ourselves, we shopped the record around. That's what we did for Ble
Invented is the seventh studio album by American rock band Jimmy Eat World, released on September 28, 2010 through Interscope Records. Recorded at the band's home-based studio, the album was co-produced by Mark Trombino, who had worked on the band's earlier material; the album was preceded by the single "My Best Theory", released on digital download on August 10, 2010. Lyrically influenced by the photographic works of Cindy Sherman and Hannah Starkey, vocalist and lyricist Jim Adkins states that each song is its own "closed narrative," remarking that, "the album title, refers to a song which I feel sums up the mood here, but could be taken more as this album is the deepest into character writing we have tried so far." Jimmy Eat World first announced that they were working on their follow up to Chase This Light in June 2008. At around this time, Adkins began "randomly looking at photographs by people like Cindy Sherman and trying to take ten-fifteen minutes and write down everything that came to mind about the image and the character.
On in the day I would be working on my own songs, some of the more interesting parts of those writing sessions started creeping in." Adkins states that around 85-90% of the album's lyrics stem from this experiment, that Sherman's Completely Untitled Film Still series, Hannah Starkey’s Photographs 1997-2007, were key influences. Whilst working on this new material, the band embarked upon a ten-year "anniversary tour", celebrating the release of their third studio album, Clarity. Vocalist and guitarist Jim Adkins states that the tour did not have a direct influence on the forthcoming material but notes that "it was an overall confidence booster because it's kind of an amazing that ten years on people still like records we made in the'90s." Whilst on tour, the band became reacquainted with Clarity's producer Mark Trombino, decided to work with him once again for their forthcoming album. Trombino produced the band's second studio album, Static Prevails, their commercial breakthrough, Bleed American.
Jimmy Eat World subsequently began recording tracks at their home studio and rehearsal space, Unit 2 in Tempe, Arizona. After "taking songs as far as could," the band emailed them to Trombino, based in Los Angeles. Jim Adkins remarked, " would do a mix of it and add production ideas and we would just kind of go back and forth like that. Is the wizard at computers, the history that we have working with him we don't have with anybody else, so it made sense on the familiarity level and the ease of working level." Although the band and Trombino spent little time together in the studio, Trombino joined Jimmy Eat World "a couple of times", with Adkins travelling to Los Angeles to join Trombino during the mixing process. Regarding the overall recording process, Adkins stated: "I could see our approach being a standard working method in the future for a lot of people, it frees up a lot of our geographic restrictions for the band. Guitarist and backing vocalist Tom Linton wrote and sang lead vocals on "Action Needs an Audience", marking his first lead vocal appearance in eleven years.
Adkins states. I wasn't happy with anything I was coming up with. Tom was always championing that song as something we needed to keep working on, so we all decided that he should take a crack at writing lyrics for it then. It's cool. I think it works."Singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews provided backing vocals for five of the album's tracks. Adkins, who met Andrews through mutual friends in Phoenix, described her as "extremely talented", stated that she is "very versatile. There's a few spots on the record, she came down and cut those and it worked out so well. I put her to work on some other things that I thought might be interesting to get more voices in there." Andrews subsequently joined the band on tour, with Adkins stating, "there's female vocals on most of our records, so it's nice to have that represented live. It's nice having her around to cover the higher stuff that I don’t do live."Upon release and vocalist Jim Adkins stated: "Given what we know about making records and what we are technically are able to do, I think it's our best work so far.
I have little complaints about it." On August 10, 2010, "My Best Theory" was released as a single, released to radio on August 17. Invented was released on September 28 through Interscope Records. Upon release, Invented included four individual pictures, designed to look like instant camera photographs, outwith the album's standard CD artwork. "Coffee and Cigarettes" was released to radio on November 23. In May and June 2011, the group went on a headlining tour of the US. Following this, the group appeared at Glastonbury Festival in the UK. Invented received positive reviews from most music critics. Sampling sixteen reviews, the review aggregator website Metacritic gave the album a weighted average score of 68, indicating "generally favorable reviews". Writing for AbsolutePunk, Chris Fallon was impressed with the album and awarded a score of 93%. Fallon praised the production work of Mark Trombino; the title track and "Mixtape" are gorgeous illustrations of just how talented Jimmy Eat World is: inescapable bass lines swallowed b
A Praise Chorus
"A Praise Chorus" is a song by American rock band Jimmy Eat World. It was released in October 2002 as the fourth single released from the band's fourth album Bleed American, retitled Jimmy Eat World. After the second stanza, references to seven songs become the "praise chorus" of the title; the first line is sung continuously in the background. Tommy James and the Shondells - "Crimson and Clover" - "Crimson and clover and over", sung continuously in the background. Madness - "Our House" - "Our house in the middle of the street." The Promise Ring - "Why Did Ever We Meet" - "Why did we meet?" Bad Company - "Rock'n' Roll Fantasy" - " my rock'n' roll fantasy." They Might Be Giants - "Don't Let's Start" - "Don't, don't, don't let's start." The Promise Ring - "All of My Everythings" - "Why did we part?"

During live performances, Tom Linton sings the repeated "Crimson and Clover" line, while Jim Adkins sings the lyrics from the other six songs.

Rolling Stone is an American monthly magazine that focuses on popular culture. It was founded in San Francisco, California in 1967 by Jann Wenner, still the magazine's publisher, the music critic Ralph J. Gleason, it was first known for political reporting by Hunter S. Thompson. In the 1990s, the magazine shifted focus to a younger readership interested in youth-oriented television shows, film actors, popular music. In recent years, it has resumed its traditional mix of content. Rolling Stone Press is the magazine's associated book publishing imprint. Straight Arrow Press was the magazine's associated book publishing imprint, Straight Arrow Publishing Co. Inc. was the publishing company that published Rolling Stone. Rolling Stone magazine was founded in San Francisco in 1967 by Ralph Gleason. To get it off the ground, Wenner borrowed $7,500 from his own family and from the parents of his soon-to-be wife, Jane Schindelheim; the first issue carried a cover date of November 9, 1967, was in newspaper format with a lead article on the Monterey Pop Festival.
The cover price was 25¢. In the first issue, Wenner explained that the title of the magazine referred to the 1950 blues song "Rollin' Stone", recorded by Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan's hit single "Like a Rolling Stone": You're wondering what we're trying to do. It's hard to say: sort of a sort of a newspaper; the name of it is Rolling Stone which comes from an old saying, "A rolling stone gathers no moss." Muddy Waters used the name for a song. The Rolling Stones took their name from Muddy's song. "Like a Rolling Stone" was the title of Bob Dylan's first rock and roll record. We have begun a new publication reflecting what we see are the changes in rock and roll and the changes related to rock and roll."—Jann Wenner, Rolling Stone, November 9, 1967, p. 2 Some authors have attributed the name to Dylan's hit single: "At Gleason's suggestion, Wenner named his magazine after a Bob Dylan song." Rolling Stone identified with and reported the hippie counterculture of the era. However, it distanced itself from the underground newspapers of the time, such as Berkeley Barb, embracing more traditional journalistic standards and avoiding the radical politics of the underground press.
In the first edition, Wenner wrote that Rolling Stone "is not just about the music, but about the things and attitudes that music embraces". In the 1970s, Rolling Stone began to make a mark with its political coverage, with the likes of gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson writing for the magazine's political section. Thompson first published his most famous work Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas within the pages of Rolling Stone, where he remained a contributing editor until his death in 2005. In the 1970s, the magazine helped launch the careers of many prominent authors, including Cameron Crowe, Lester Bangs, Joe Klein, Joe Eszterhas, Ben Fong-Torres, Patti Smith and P. J. O'Rourke, it was at this point that the magazine ran some of its most famous stories, including that of the Patty Hearst abduction odyssey. One interviewer, speaking for a large number of his peers, said that he bought his first copy of the magazine upon initial arrival on his college campus, describing it as a "rite of passage".
In 1977, the magazine moved its headquarters from San Francisco to New York City. Editor Jann Wenner said San Francisco had become "a cultural backwater". During the 1980s, the magazine began to shift towards being a general "entertainment" magazine. Music was still a dominant topic, but there was increasing coverage of celebrities in television and the pop culture of the day; the magazine initiated its annual "Hot Issue" during this time. Rolling Stone was known for its musical coverage and for Thompson's political reporting. In the 1990s, the magazine changed its format to appeal to a younger readership interested in youth-oriented television shows, film actors and popular music; this led to criticism. In recent years, the magazine has resumed its traditional mix of content, including in-depth political stories, it has expanded content to include coverage of financial and banking issues. As a result, the magazine has seen its circulation increase and its reporters invited as experts to network television programs of note.
The printed format has gone through several changes. The first publications, in 1967–72, were in folded tabloid newspaper format, with no staples, black ink text, a single color highlight that changed each edition. From 1973 onwards, editions were produced on a four-color press with a different newsprint paper size. In 1979, the bar code appeared. In 1980, it became a large format magazine; as of edition of October 30, 2008, Rolling Stone has had a smaller, standard-format magazine size. After years of declining readership, the magazine experienced a major resurgence of interest and relevance with the work of two young journalists in the late 2000s, Michael Hastings and Matt Taibbi. In 2005, Dana Leslie Fields, former publisher of Rolling Stone, who had worked at the magazine for 17 years, was an inaugural inductee into the Magazine Hall of Fame. In 2009, Taibbi unleashed an acclaimed series of scathing reports on the financial meltdown of the time, he famously described Goldman Sachs as "a great vampire squid".
Bigger headlines came at the end of June 2010. Rolling Stone caused a controversy in the White House by publishing in the July issue an article by journalist Michael Hastings entitled, "The Runaway General", quoting criticism by General Stanley A. McChrystal, commander of the International Security Assistance Force and U. S. Forces-Afghanistan commander, about Vice President Joe Biden and oth
"Always Be" is the second single from Jimmy Eat World's sixth studio album Chase This Light. The song impacted radio on December 4, 2007; the single was released in the U. K on March 3, 2008. Slant Magazine's Jonathan Keefe praised the song's use of "snaps and handclaps" and compared its melody to the highlights on both The Shins' Wincing the Night Away and Shout Out Louds' Our Ill Wills. In a negative review for the album, Andrew Blackie from PopMatters criticized the track for being "gimmicky and insincere." The band began filming the video on January 5, 2008. A 30-second clip was soon added to Jimmy Eat World's official website, as well as the clip being shown on MTV Two, on January 27, it was announced the video would premiere on MTV TRL on January 30 at 3.30pm. The video follows a school trip to a science museum which focuses on a boy and girl who come to like each other by the end of the video; as the band plays, the two find themselves separated from their tour group and run around the museum, playing with the displays until they catch up with the rest of their classmates.
The full video is now available to download on iTunes. It was directed by the Malloys; the video was filmed at the Natural History Museum in California.
