Watch Jimmy Eat World’s new music video for “Something Loud”
The video was co-directed by the band and Austin Gavin.
In "Something Loud," Jim Adkins cries out, hoping to learn just how much or little people change over time. Some ideas persist, molding the minds they live inside while others disappear after a moment's consideration.
The video's construction is relatively simple. Jimmy Eat World perform the song with amazing vigor, but the visual undermines their energy with its lack of color. Even here, the track's message remains clear and the band will push to remain a "part of something loud" even as other aspects begin to fade away.
Adkins spoke on the song's meaning in a press release.
“While I thought I made the most of the early band days, I realize now I missed some stuff,” Adkins says. “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 ‘grownups’ 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.
Jimmy Eat World are set to tour the U.S. with Charly Bliss starting Aug. 19 in Denver. Be sure to get your tickets here.
