13-06-2018 12:00:00 13-06-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Jimmy Eat World: Integrity Blues The Tour with Alex Lahey (2nd show) | 8:00 PM Before Jimmy Eat World entered the studio to record their ninth full-length album, Integrity Blues [RCA], the members of the multiplatinum Mesa, AZ rock band did something they've never done in over two decades. "We took a little break," smiles lead singer and guitarist Jim Adkins. After a successful 10th anniversary tour revisiting Futures, the musicians briefly went their separate ways at the end of 2014. Adkins released a series of 7" & embarked on his first worldwide solo tour, Lind released an EP and toured with his wife in The Wretched Desert, Linton took up boxing, and Burch opened up CaskWerks Distillery in Arizona. When the band reconvened in November 2015, they teamed up with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen [Paramore, M83] and began sifting through ideas. "I came to a realization," admits Adkins. "In the break, writing was a little trickier. I wanted to change things up. So, instead of writing about a problem, I wanted to write about a solution. If you look at your life for what's going wrong, it won't be too hard to find things. If you start looking at what you have rather than what you're missing out on, you come away from things with a much different perspective that's a lot more grateful and positive. As an album, Integrity Blues is about trying to overcome that personal struggle instead of getting upset with what life could be that it isn't." They recorded in Los Angeles with Meldal-Johnsen, offering a different setting from their usual Arizona digs. "We became willing to throw away our default responses to everything and search for the best answers rather than relying on what was familiar or comfortable. When you're younger and you make music, you do it for discovery. Being in this for a long time, it's about throwing out all of your expectations and comforts and seeing what you can do without them." With warm production and a powerful upbeat groove, Integrity Blues first single "Sure and Certain" pairs a buzzing guitar hum with an unshakable chant. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=276536 Brooklyn Steel Brooklyn Steel
