Jimmy Eat World have done what other bands have started to do as of lately; give the fans a scavenger hunt of sorts to unlock their new tracks.
Today the band had tweeted that each song would be released pending the fans determination to unlock certain tracks from their new album, Damage.
Instead of going the traditional route of releasing all the tracks at once via the internet or iTunes like many bands have been doing lately, the band decided to let the fans tweet each song to be able to unlock the track. Once there were enough tweets were received, a new song would then be unlocked. Hence the scavenger hunt-like thing.
About half of the new record had already been floating around the internet in the form of music videos and live performances which should come as no surprise to anyone.
Damage is the band’s eight studio album and is currently scheduled to be released on June 11th through RCA Records.
As if the new album and ahead of time stream of it wasn’t enough, Jimmy Eat World will kick off their US tour on June 30th.
