6 JIMMY EAT WORLD BRING THE FEELS

Kerrang! (UK) - - Reading Leads -

The re­turn­ing emo Ti­tans are sure To make it rain (Tears, at least) MARK HOP­PUS RE­CENTLY TWEETED THAT ALL HE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT A PER­SON IS WHAT THEIR FAVOURITE JIMMY EAT WORLD AL­BUM IS. WHAT KIND OF PER­SON WOULD CHOOSE YOUR LAT­EST ONE, IN­TEGRITY BLUES?

JIM ADKINS (VO­CALS/GUI­TAR): “Oh man… that’s tough! I guess for the peo­ple I’ve met on this tour, it’s our most re­cent al­bum and the one be­ing pro­moted, so it’s in their con­scious­ness. It’s tough be­cause peo­ple have all kinds of rea­sons for what they con­nect with…”

WHICH AL­BUM DO YOU GRAV­I­TATE TO?

“It’s been a while since I sat down and lis­tened to one of our own records, hon­estly! You’re al­ways most ex­cited about the thing you just did, so I think if it was go­ing to be any of the records it would be In­tegrity Blues.”

YOU’RE PLAY­ING ON THE MAIN STAGE AT READ­ING & LEEDS – HOW ARE YOU FEEL­ING ABOUT THE PROSPECT?

“The prospects are good! We’ve done it be­fore, but that doesn’t make it any less of an in­sane hon­our to be in­vited.we don’t take any of these op­por­tu­ni­ties that come to us for granted, be­cause it ends. There’s a lot of peo­ple who spend their time telling me that they think it won’t end, but they’re in for a real bum­mer when it does.when you just said we were do­ing it, I got a chill up my spine… We’re PLAY­ING THE FUCK­ING MAIN STAGE AT READ­ING & LEEDS!”

DO YOU MAKE RECORDS WITH THE AT­TI­TUDE THAT IT MIGHT BE YOUR LAST, THEN?

“I wouldn’t cat­e­gorise it like that… I don’t think I look at it like the record we’re work­ing on is the last we’ll ever do. It’s more like,‘let’s make this thing like it’s the pin­na­cle of what we’re able to do right now!’” MAIN STAGE; R: FRI­DAY, 5:40PM; L: SATUR­DAY, 5:05PM
