When Jimmy Eat World released ‘Something Loud’ earlier this year, we weren’t sure if they would follow it up at all. Now they’ve turned down the volume a bit, and we still love what we’re hearing!
‘Place Your Debts’ is the name of this new track. It opens up with an eerie keyboard sound that blossoms into a different kind of sound for Jimmy Eat World. While not too far of a cry from their usual tendencies, it’s guaranteed to make fans notice the ambition!
Lyrically is where ‘Place Your Debts’ really shines, showcasing Jim Adkins’ ability to get contemplative in a beautiful way. The chorus reads, “How do we keep making the same mistakes? We’d rather have the misery than growing pains,” and is sure to hit hard upon delivery. The verses follow the same suit, painting vivid pictures of what it’s like to avoid truly knowing yourself.
Alongside the song’s release came a music video that Adkins was also very involved in. It features him singing to the camera in front of various backgrounds and is the definition of being so simple yet amazing! Below is the video for those who want to witness all of its perfection.
There’s not much else new in the realm of Jimmy Eat World, but what they are doing is closing out the year right with a few shows! They finish their time playing When We Were Young on October 29 and are slated to play a few more festivals in December.
Tickets that remain can be found here for those interested!
With that said, we’d love to know if you’re enjoying the new Jimmy Eat World as much as we are! We always welcome your opinions, which you can share in the comments or engage with us on our Twitter @TheHoneyPOP!
