Jimmy Eat World announce new album, club tour

, Staff

Jimmy Eat World have revealed plans for an intimate club tour in support of their forthcoming album, Damage. The veteran alt-rockers’ summer outing includes a stop in Boston for a show at the House of Blues on Monday, August 5. Tickets for the concert will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $30 and $40.

Damage, Jimmy Eat World’s eighth studio effort and follow-up to 2010’s Invented, is scheduled for release on June 11. The album was recorded last fall at the Los Angeles home of producer Alain Johannes. Fans can get a taste of the new release with lead single “I Will Steal You Back”, which is streaming below.

“We used tape for the first time in a long time, as well as computer,” said singer-guitarist Jim Adkins of the recording process for Damage in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. “I hate saying more raw, but it’s more raw and warm. 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 clean and perfect. There’s a lot of stuff that’s more about the performance than it sounding pristine. And I think it feels better for what the songs are.”
