Jimmy Eat World’s sixth studio album Invented is available in stores and digitally today. The album marks the reunion of the band and producer Mark Trombino who served as producer on the band’s two biggest selling albums Clarity and Bleed American. The deluxe version of the album is currently the #4 best seller on iTunes.
First single “My Best Theory” has quickly stormed up the Modern Rock charts and now is the #3 song at the format. New York Magazine wrote: “The pounding single ["My Best Theory"] from Jimmy Eat World’s forthcoming album, Invented, reminds us that emo used to actually rock, not whine.” The band recently performed a blistering rendition of the song on Late Show with David Letterman this past Friday, September 24. The heavily science fiction influenced video for “My Best Theory” made its debut last Friday.
The band started a tour across the U.S. on September 21 and has been playing to packed houses. The Washington Post wrote about a stop in DC that “they sounded as fiery as ever, like classic rock power ballads ramped up to the speed of punk.”
As Spin wrote in its review of Invented “These influential Arizonans have been churning out carefully calibrated emo-rock jams for so long that you kind of wish they’d lengthened the title of their….album by a few words: Jimmy Eat World Invented This Shit…” Jimmy Eat World is one of the standards and strongest voices of rock over the last decade, Invented is set to prove that they’ll be a major force in the upcoming decade.”
