Jimmy Eat World are celebrating the release of their tenth album with a new video.
'Surviving' arrives today, alongside an 80s sci-fi-inspired clip for '555' and a handful of UK instores over the next few days: catch them at Birmingham’s new HMV Vault tonight, Banquet Records’ Pryzm tomorrow (19th) and Metropolis Studios on Sunday (20th).
“I've always liked the Rick Springfield video for 'Bop 'Till You Drop'," says Jim of the new video. "A reptilian overlord managing his minions gets overthrown by his workforce. He's kind of trying to keep them in line, but one guy breaks into song and mass rebellion ensues. From the overlord's perspective, that day was a pretty bad day.
"I always thought that was funny. So 555 sees me cast as a galactic evil master, overseeing an army of cloned species doing my bidding - this is the only life they know, joining me in song in this post-apocalyptic dystopia."
Check out '555' below.
