Jimmy Eat World drop final instalment of the Phoenix Sessions

Jimmy Eat World have digitally released Surviving: Phoenix Sessions, the third album in a trilogy of pre-recorded ‘live shows’ that were originally broadcast earlier this year.

The latest release was a chance for the Arizona pop-punks to run through their 2019 album Surviving and the series of broadcasts also took in run-throughs of 1999’s Clarity and Futures from 2004.

The three shows were filmed at the Icehouse art space in Phoenix, Arizona and used an in-the-round stage set with different lighting rigs and projections to combine elements of a concert film, TV appearance and live show.

“What was really exciting about doing these was it’s not a show, so forget about the idea that it has to conform to what a show looks like,” singer Jim Adkins told Consequence of Sound, back in February.

“It’s not band versus audience setup, like what a stage would look like. So in that, what can you do that’s cool? Where’s the opportunity in that to do something that you wouldn’t be able to pull off on a stage production kind of setup?”

Next year the band will be back on the road, with a series of mainly European dates with support from The Get Up Kids and Together Pangea plus a stop at the Lollapalooza Stockholm festival in Sweden.
