Jim Adkins, Jimmy Eat World (Nov. 10)

Jimmy Eat World frontman Jim Adkins has announced that he will be releasing a series of singles, beginning with “I Will Go” this Friday, July 10. A new track will debut every Friday from now until August 14. In September, each track will be released over three seven-inch singles. 

“2015 seemed like as good a time as any to take a second and experiment with life outside the pattern,” comments Adkins. “In the past I have been involved with solo work, playing mostly benefit concerts locally in my home of Arizona. Toward the end of our last European tour I decided to stick around and play a solo show in Berlin, DE. I thought to myself: ‘Hey, this is different and also pretty fun… I could keep going.’ So why not?”
