It’s time to sharpen your black eyeliner and dig through your closet for those old skinny jeans, because Jimmy Eat World has returned with two new songs, their first since the release of their 2016 album Integrity Blue. The emo-pop icons release the killer tracks, “Love Never” and “Half Heart,”, and social media is exploding with fans stating how stoked they are now that the boys are finally releasing new music.
Can you believe @jimmyeatworld have been around for as long as I’ve been alive and they’re still making some of the best music I’ve ever heard

Everybody don’t panic. But there is new Jimmy Eat World on Spotify and it’s incredible. 😜

Both songs feature heartfelt lyrics and an early 2000s sound that the band is known for. “Love Never” is a catchy guitar-driven ballad with vocals that crescendo throughout the chorus, while “Half Heart” features a slower tempo that showcases the band’s more sensitive side. Listen to the new tracks in full below.
Jimmy Eat World are currently kicking off their Integrity Blues tour, with one Canadian stop in Montbello, QC for 2018 Montbello Rockfest on June 16. Here’s to hoping more new music is on the way from these punk-pop veterans.
