Appears On

Possibly Something Loud

Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I walked around for days,

in a familiar place.

This time I finally let myself own every small feeling.

There was the one who got away.

There was a first for everything.

Never a second guess if I was right where I should be

Do you know what I mean?


[Chorus]

(gang vocals) All night!

Do you still feel part of something loud?

(gang vocals) All night!

Are you such a different person now?

A dream that never was,

An idea you think you come from.

All night,

when you can’t look at the day.


[Verse 2]

I had it figured out,

the way it really is.

In growing up it added just too much complexity.

Friends at the show in ‘95,

miss every one of them.

But there's a moment that you die,

or you move on to live.

Every one of us did!


[Chorus]

(gang vocals) All night!

Do you still feel part of something loud?

(gang vocals) All night!

Are you such a different person now?

A dream that never was,

An idea you think you come from.

All night,

when you can’t look at the day.

[Bridge]

I had what I had, and god damn,

I would change not a single thing

So smile, wave, then let go!

[Chorus]

(gang vocals) All night!

Do you still feel part of something loud?

(gang vocals) All night!

Are you such a different person now?

A dream that never was,

An idea you think you come from.

All night,

when you can look at the day.


[Outro]

(background vocals) All night!

When you can forget the day!

(background vocals) All night!

When you can forget the day!

Recording Details

Something Loud Percussion Setup from Zach Lind's Tweet
Something Loud Percussion Setup from Zach Lind's Tweet

The songs theme was related to the excitement of fans for 2022-10’s When We Were Young Festival. "The overwhelming response to the lineup triggered a period of deep personal and professional reflection" for Jim Adkins. "I thought I made the most of the early band days, I realize now I missed some stuff,...You’re in such a hurry to grow out of the formidable years. Like s__t-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.” [6] [7]

The track was self-released via the bands label Exotic Location Recordings and leave the band "creatively invigorated with no one to answer to but themselves” in a situation similar to the lead up to the critically acclaimed Bleed American. [8] [9] [10] Drummer Zach Lind posted his gear for the song, which included a ride cymbal used in Bleed American and a kick drum used for recordings from Static Prevails, to Bleed American including Clarity. [11]

Reception

Will Schube of udiscovermusic.com said "Something Loud has all the qualities that we come to expect of a Jimmy Eat World song: punchy, powerful guitar driven intro, instrumental dynamics, topped off by the earnest lyrics, with Jim Adkins asking, 'Do you still feel part of something loud?'” [6] Rachel Brodsky of Stereogum said it's a "back-to-basics single" and that "Sonically, it’s a melodic three-chord banger that sounds ripped straight from Bleed American." [12] Carys Anderson for of Consequence of Sound reviewed the track saying it "combines the Jimmy Eat World classics — chiming guitars and Jim Adkins’ tuneful voice — with a shouted chorus of group vocals. Altogether it’s another anthem." [13] Philip Trapp of loudwire.com noted that lyrically the song is wistful, but with a future focused message saying it "throws back to Jimmy Eat World's early days. The lyrics mention a "show in '95" to illustrate the band's formative years in Phoenix. But its message ultimately lands on eschewing the past to move forward." [14]

Published on June 10, 2022 By Will Schube Jimmy Eat World - Photo: Lupe Bustos Arizona rockers Jimmy Eat World have released their powerful new track “Something Loud,” available everywhere digitally. The band also released an accompanying video, which they co-directed alongside Austin Gavin. Produce by the band and Justin Meldel-Johnson, “Something Loud” has all the qualities that we come to expect of a Jimmy Eat World song: punchy, powerful guitar driven intro, instrumental dynamics, topped off by the earnest lyrics, with Jim Adkins asking, “Do you still feel part of something loud?” Inspiration struck Adkins as he witnessed the excitement over the announcement of October’s When We Were Young Festival. The overwhelming response to the lineup triggered a period of deep personal and professional reflection: “While I thought I made the most of the early band days, I realize now I missed some stuff,” Adkins explains. “You’re in such a hurry to grow out of the formidable years. Like s__t-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.” The video for “Something Loud” finds Jimmy Eat World present and reflective—and for good reason, as they live in the moment of this current emo/alt resurgence and embrace the back-to-basics approach. Shot at their studio in black and white, the video is simple, showing a close-knit performance, reminiscent of 2021’s Phoenix Sessions concert film series. This visual, however, was meant to be much different as the band had been collaborating with friend and “555” co-director Mike Gill on over-the-top ideas when they got the tragic news of Mike’s passing. The closing scene is a nod to their late pal. Touring will remain a priority for the band throughout 2022, with shows overseas in June and July, followed by the headlining Something Loud Tour across North America that begins September 8 in Cleveland.

The track is the band’s first single since ‘Love Never’, which was released in 2019 and featured on the album ‘Surviving’. ‘Something Loud’ was inspired by the excitement that surrounded the announcement of When We Were Young festival, which will take place in Las Vegas this October. Speaking in a press release, frontman Jim Adkins said the response to the event elicited a period of reflection in both his personal and professional lives. “While I thought I made the most of the early band days, I realise now I missed some stuff,” he said. “You’re in such a hurry to grow out of the formidable years.

"Something Loud" was co-produced by members of the band and Justin Meldel-Johnson, a producer best known for his work with Beck, Paramore, Nine Inch Nails, M83, Air and St. Vincent. A guitar-driven rocker that's guaranteed to speak to fans who cut their teeth on "Bleed American," complete with an instantly contagious chorus built for massive singalongs, it finds Jim Adkins asking, “Do you still feel part of something loud?” What inspired Jimmy Eat World's new song 'Something Loud' It's a question he found himself asking as he witnessed the excitement over the announcement of October’s When We Were Young Festival, which triggered a period of deep reflection. In a press release, Adkin explains, “While I thought I made the most of the early band days, I realize now I missed some stuff. You’re in such a hurry to grow out of the formidable years." At that age, Adkins says, a lot of people just assume they'll magically get their act together when they hit whatever age they think of as how old a grownup is. "It doesn’t work that way," he says. "But maybe the thing age and experience do reveal is that pivotal moments are hard to grasp when you are in them." The song is self-released, a situation their press release refers to as familiar "to the lead up to the critically acclaimed 'Bleed American'; sans-label and creatively invigorated with no one to answer to but themselves." "Bleed American" was the Arizona rockers' mainstream breakthrough and remains their most successful album, largely driven by "The Middle," a Top 5 smash on Billboard's Hot 100. Despite a title change after Sept. 11, 2001, for fear that "Bleed American" could be misinterpreted as "Bleed, American," the temporarily self-titled album was certified platinum in 2002. Four singles from the album went Top 20 on Billboard's alternative chart. It also finished ninth on a list of 40 Greatest Emo Albums of All Time at Rolling Stone, which hailed it as "the album that propelled them from playing with underground bands like Mineral and Christie Front Drive to full-blown mainstream success." 'Something Loud' video The video for “Something Loud” was shot in black and white in their Arizona studio, showing a close-knit performance reminiscent of 2021’s Phoenix Sessions concert series. When they started on the video, they were working on ideas with their friend Mike Gill, who co-directed “555.” The closing scene is a nod to Gill, who died before they had a chance to bring those ideas to life.

Produced by the band and Justin Meldel-Johnson, “Something Loud” combines the Jimmy Eat World classics — chiming guitars and Jim Adkins’ tuneful voice — with a shouted chorus of group vocals.

  14. https://loudwire.com/jimmy-eat-world-something-loud-song-video/?utm_source=tsmclip&utm_medium=referral, Jimmy Eat World’s New Song ‘Something Loud’ Proves the Band Will Never Age, Trapp, Philip, 2022-06-10, Loudwire.com, Loudwire.com, 2022-06-14, Jimmy Eat World’s New Song ‘Something Loud’ Proves the Band Will Never Age Philip Trapp Published: June 10, 2022 In Jimmy Eat World songs, the protagonist is often on the cusp of a poignant epiphany, the accompanying strains of emotional pop-rock mirroring the narrative. That holds for "Something Loud," the new tune self-released by the Arizona rockers on Friday (June 10). The wistful pop-rock number looks back on the past — in this case, the lyric's central character is likely Jimmy Eat World singer-songwriter Jim Adkins himself. Still, it keeps things fresh by further distilling what Jimmy Eat World does best — charting youth's bloom through cinematic rock music that doesn't seem to age, much like Adkins' boyish visage. Watch the music video near the bottom of this post. "Something Loud" throws back to Jimmy Eat World's early days. The lyrics mention a "show in '95" to illustrate the band's formative years in Phoenix. But its message ultimately lands on eschewing the past to move forward. "There's a moment that you die / Or you move on to live," Adkins sings. "Every one of us did." If you like the song, it's now available here. Jimmy Eat World's latest album is 2019's Surviving. The group's early efforts — 2001's Bleed American, 1999's Clarity and 1996's Static Prevails — helped define emo rock at the turn of the millennium. Later this summer, Jimmy Eat World hit the road in North America. See the dates below and get tickets here.,
