Influential alt-emo-rock band and Ernie Ball artists Jimmy Eat World release their ninth album today, titled Integrity Blues. The record, a follow-up to 2013’s Damage, is filled with sonic callbacks to the band’s previous albums like Chase This Light, Futures and even 1999’s emo-touchstone Clarity.
“There’s no such thing as consistency. The best you can be is just in a state of progress all the time.” — Jim Adkins
The band recently stopped by the WNYC studio to record a segment for Soundcheck, in which they discuss the new record and play a selection of stripped-down tracks from the album, as well as some older gems. Stream the whole session right here:
