After three long years, the wait for new Jimmy Eat World musical sweetness is finally over. However, for those who are nostalgic to jump around to angst-driven tracks like “Sweetness” and “The Middle,” the upcoming ninth album may be quite the change as Jim Adkins describes it as more of an “adult break-up record.” The lyrical maturity of the single even feels as if it could belong within the 2004 album “Futures,” proving that after nearly 20 years together the band still maintains a distinct sound all of their own. Longtime listeners find familiarity in Adkins’ vocals melding with a chorus of heavy guitars in “I Will Steal You Back,” giving fans a quick preview of what to expect from “Damage,” set to be released on June 11.
