It just took some time, but pop punk powerhouses Jimmy Eat World end a three year silence with their new record Surviving. This record showcases the same ear for melody that helped skyrocket the band after their 2001 record Bleed American, and removes some of the angst to show a more mature and refined version of the band’s signature sound. Blending post hardcore production with pop melodies and punky instrumentation, the band creates a sound that is as catchy as it is energizing. After 26 years as a band, Surviving is proof that the band can transcend the tropes of the current time to reinsert themselves as a figurehead in pop punk.
