The only thing they've released independently was that Clarity Live album which was a digital only release.
That's not fully correct. The Clarity vinyl repress was joint released with Jim's Western Medicine. I don't see why they can't just use the WM to release it. I'm sure Jim and Charlie would do a great job.
ok. jimmy eat world, you guys are solidified, well known, well respected. an album has never let me down.
why not play your new record, live, in its entirety, one show, your city of choice, w/ of course, the encore of previous hits.
it'd be the complete opposite of these 10 year anniversary gigs that have been going on (i'm not hating btw, i just saw the starting line's SILYMI and LOVED it),
but it'd be different. think of it like how bands allow websites or they themselves to stream their new album in its entirety...
it's the same concept, just you'll be playing it live.
to maybe even embellish on the concept of "album streaming," why not stream that concert online as well.
fans will not only get a live performance, but an entire stream of your newest record. you wouldn't have to worry about your album getting leaked, because the most you'll have is an online stream, or, at the very least, a couple of iPhone video recordings that hit youtube.
Wasn't Victory supposed to announce a new band signing soon?
i wouldn't wish victory records on anyone let alone jimmy eat world, my favourite band ever.
i think hopeless records would be a good choice, fbr possibly but i mostly feel like if fbr don't think something is going to be massive on a worldwide scale they're fairly useless in terms of giving a shit about promoting a record :(see: the swellers, this providence etc)
I could understand hopeless, but rise is really the better choice imo. I get that hopeless has been bringing in veteran bands such as the used, yellowcard, and silverstein, but rise does the same and I personally feel that jimmy eat world fits better alongside the early november, further seems forever and the bouncing souls. Also, imagine that tour.
