Jimmy Eat World: New Album in September

On September 28, Jimmy Eat World fans will have something all-new to listen to: Invented, the Arizona pop-punk vets' seventh full-length record and follow-up to 2007's Chase the Light.

The news was unveiled in a brief post to the band's website Monday: "[We're] back with producer Mark Trombino (Clarity, Bleed American) -- we made noise and laid down the tunes in our Arizona studio. Touring plans coming your way soon!" The band also posted the new album's cover art.

"Invented" marks the band's first studio album since 2007's "Chase This Light" which landed Jimmy Eat World's highest chart position of their career at #5 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart. Jimmy Eat World's last release may have been three years ago but they've been busy. The boys took a break from the recording of "Invented" to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of their influential album, "Clarity" with a sold out national tour.

Jimmy Eat World's Fall tour plans are being finalized now.


Pink Floyd Bandmates to Reunite Again for Another Live Show

David Gilmour will join Roger Waters on stage for his 30th anniversary tour of “The Wall“. Waters posted the news on Facebook stating that Gilmour had offered to join him on stage for the shows.

Gilmour apparently emailed Waters and offered to play on one of his Wall shows, if Waters agreed to play a charity gig at the HOPING Foundation with Gilmour.

Waters said:

“How could I refuse such an offer. I couldn’t, there was no way. Generosity trumped fear. And so explaining that I would probably be shitting it but if he didn’t mind I didn’t – I agreed and the rest is history. We did it, and it was fucking great. End of story. Or possibly beginning.”

Which gig Gilmour will appear at is still to be decided and will not be announced officially as the Pink Floyd bandmates would like to keep it a surprise.

Many fans have called for Gilmour to appear at more than one show on the tour, but nothing official has been announced yet.
