Pearl Jam announce eleventh studio album ‘Gigaton’

From Planet Rock.

Pearl Jam will release their fervently awaited eleventh studio album ‘Gigaton’ on Friday 27th March 2020 via Universal Music Group.

Produced by Josh Evans and Pearl Jam themselves, the long gestating ‘Gigaton’ is Pearl Jam’s first studio album since October 2013’s ‘Lightning Bolt’, which reached number two on the UK album chart and spawned the singles ‘Mind Your Manners’ and ‘Sirens’.

‘Gigaton’ will be preceded by the lead single ‘Dance of the Clairvoyants’ that will be released in the coming weeks.

Lead guitarist Mike McCready says of the album: “Making this record was a long journey. 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.”

The visually striking artwork was taken by acclaimed Canadian photographer, filmmaker, and marine biologist Paul Nicklen.

Entitled ‘Ice Waterfall’, the stunning photograph was taken in Svalbard, Norway, and features the Nordaustlandet ice cap gushing high volumes of meltwater.

Pearl Jam are embarking on a North American headline tour throughout March and April in support of ‘Gigaton’ before hitting Europe in the summer.

The European trek includes a previously announced headline slot at American Express presents BST Hyde Park on Friday 10th July. It’s their only UK date of 2020 and tickets are on sale from Planet Rock Tickets right now.

2020 is Pearl Jam’s 30th anniversary as band. Over their distinguished career, the Seattle rockers have sold more than 85 million albums worldwide.
