Earlier this year, Jimmy Eat World shared their brand new single ‘Something Loud.’ The song also served as the band’s first independent single on their own label Exotic Location. Now, the band treated fans with an acoustic rendition of the song, which can be heard below.
Frontman Jim Adkins reveals the song itself was inspired by the reaction to the announcement of the When We Were Young Festival. “While I thought I made the most of the early band days, I realise now I missed some stuff,” Jim said. “You’re in such a hurry to grow out of the formidable years. Like shit-togetherness is going to magically arrive when you hit some age you thought ‘grown-ups’ were. Yeah, it doesn’t work that way. But maybe the thing age and experience do reveal is that pivotal moments are hard to grasp when you are in them.”
