Jimmy Eat World frontman Jim Adkins is launching his own podcast.

Titled Pass-Through Frequencies, the series finds Adkins “unpacking the craft of songwriting and creative process over an in-depth interview with fellow musicians every week.”

“When I’m working on a song, it almost feels like I am channeling something,” says Adkins. “It’s like I am holding the rudder with only a vague clue who might be paddling. I have to find a balanced mindset of being wholly present…and not ‘there’ at all.”

“The creative process has as much reward and mystery as it did 26 years ago when I started writing songs with Jimmy Eat World,” he continues. “I am still totally fascinated. In this series I chat with music people about their process, preparation and execution. As well as whatever may get thrown in on the side.”

The first episode premieres on this Wednesday, August 6. Blink-182‘s Mark Hoppus will be the guest.

Future episodes will feature guests including Death Cab for Cutie‘s Ben Gibbard, Dashboard Confessional‘s Chris Carrabba, fun. vocalist Nate Ruess, Tegan Quinn of Tegan and Sara, and superstar DJ Steve Aoki.

Jimmy Eat World released their latest album, Surviving, last October.
