It isn't a mystery that when you listen to me on DC101 that I have a favorite band. They would be Jimmy Eat World from Mesa, Arizona. Ever since I heard Clarity in 1999, I was hooked.

So when it was announced that their eighth studio record was coming out, I was stoked. Then I was even more stoked when I found out what the release date is. favorite band is releasing their long awaited eighth record on my birthday!!! Upon hearing that news, I was whatever more than stoked is.

So here's the skinny...the album is called Damage.

It will be released on June 11th. The boys were generous enough to allow you to stream the album (the link is below).

I, however, refuse to listen to it because of this reason: the album is coming out on my birthday. I'll purchase it that day and listen to it then. It will be like two presents in one.

If you would like to give it a listen, go for it. Click here.

And they have announced a tour schedule and I will be seeing them in NYC, Richmond and here in The District within a five day period.
