If you’re as starved of concerts, interviews, and general bandom content as we are, Jim Adkins is swooping into the rescue. The lead vocalist and guitarist of the alt. rock group have partnered with Fender Guitars to bring you in-depth interviews with legendary musicians every week.
Beginning with Mark Hoppus of blink-182, Adkins aims to explore the craft of songwriting and the creative process behind all your favorite albums. The first episode of “Pass Through Frequencies” airs this Thursday, August 6th, so get ready!
Other guests set to appear on the show include Steve Aoki, Nate Ruess (fun.) Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional), Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie), Tegan Quinn (Tegan and Sara), and David Bazan (Pedro the Lion). Even more special guests will be announced soon!

Speaking about the idea behind the podcast, Jim says:
“When I’m working on a song, it almost feels like I am channeling something. It’s like I am holding the rudder with only a vague clue who might be paddling. I have to find a balanced mindset of being wholly present…and not “there” at all.
The creative process has as much reward and mystery as it did 26 years ago when I started writing songs with Jimmy Eat World. I am still totally fascinated. In this series, I chat with music people about their process, preparation, and execution. As well as whatever may get thrown in on the side.”
Episodes will air every Tuesday and Thursday. You can subscribe to the Jimmy Eat World YouTube so you never miss out on an episode.
