Their self-titled debut album was released in 1994 but their big break came with 2001's Bleed American.

In June Jimmy Eat World released eighth studio album Damage.

Speaking at an intimate gig in front of just 30 people at our London studios, as part of Radio X Presents with Ford SYNC, the band shared their tips for a long career in the music industry.

"Forget there is a business around you, I think. There is a lot of stuff you can't control so focussing on your work is just the most important thing," frontman Jim Adkins told Radio X's Danielle Perry.

"Being proud of your work is the only guarantee in this crazy thing."
