Jimmy Eat World

Jimmy Eat World releases new video

Jimmy Eat World has released a new video. It's for the song "555" and that's off their new album Surviving which is out now. Singer/guitarist Jim Adkins released a statement:“I've always liked the Rick Springfield video for 'Bop 'Till You Drop'. 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.”

Off With Their Heads

More details emerge regarding Off With Their Heads tour cancellation

Punknews has communicated with independent sources regarding details of the recent Off With Their Heads tour cancellation. As you are aware, the band recently and abruptly canceled a month-long tour in the middle of the trek, after arriving in Vancouver. Shortly thereafter, the band alluded to an accident involving the tour van.

Details are still developing in this story. However, a 24 year old woman named Desiree was hit by the Off With their Heads tour van while a member of the band, or an associate of the band, was driving last Saturday night. Reportedly, the woman was dragged several blocks and suffered extensive injury. According to statements released by the woman's friend Amber Jackman, Desiree was taken to Vancouver General Hospital and is facing life-threatening injuries. She will undergo multiple critical surgeries regarding injury to his face, leg, and other areas. Several surgeries have already been performed.

After the accident, a member or associate of the band was taken into custody, and then later released. According to the police, alcohol is suspected as a factor in the accident. Constable Steve Addams of the Vancouver police released a statement: "Unfortunately, the driver of the vehicle that struck her did not realize that he had struck the pedestrian. It was only after the driver came to a stop at Columbia and Hastings when he realized that this collision had occurred and realized this woman was trapped on his vehicle or under his vehicle.” This story is developing.

Update 10:32 am CTV News has issued more details on the incident.. According to that source, "CTV News cameras captured a Vancouver police officer with a breathalyzer in hand interviewing a man who looks like the band’s bassist, Robbie Swartwood, behind police tape as dozens of other officers closed several blocks of Hastings to investigate. A police department spokesperson had previously said the driver didn’t realize he had struck and dragged [the victim] for five blocks until he stopped." Band frontman Ryan Young told CTV News: “Unfortunately, I can’t speak on any of the details because there is an ongoing investigation. I also wasn’t there and have zero information about anything. All I can say is that I am heartbroken for her.”

Check out the new video by Night Surf!

Today, we are excited to debut the new video by Night Surf!

"You gotta know when to run!" the band exclaims on "Not Today, Satan!" The song is about being true to yourself and in true pop-punk fashion, cutting your losses when ya gotta cut yer losses. High energy and shout-y vocals blasts this melodic punk track forward. If Plow United formed in the early aughts instead of the early '90s, it would probably sound just like this. Also, the video has some cool ballet meets pop dancing.

You can pick up the band's new music right here! Meanwhile, check out the new video below, right now!
