Pearl Jam are back! The iconic grunge rockers have announced their eleventh studio album, their first in nearly 7 years, since 2013's Lightning Bolt. The new album is called Gigaton, and will be released on March 27th through their imprint, Monkeywrench Records via Republic Records/Universal Music Group.
The album was produced by the band and Josh Evans. The album is available for pre-order on PearlJam.com. The band promises to release it's first single, "Dance Of The Clairvoyants," shortly.
"Making this record was a long journey," Mike McCready says in the press release. "It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption. Collaborating with my bandmates on Gigaton ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times."
