Pearl Jam announces a new album and corresponding North American tour

Pearl Jam is back! This past Monday, January 13, the band announced their upcoming new album, Gigaton, on Pearl Jam Radio (Ch. 22). The highly-anticipated eleventh studio album — the first since the band’s Grammy Award winner, Lightning Bolt, in 2013 — is set to release on Friday, March 27. On the heels of the announcement, Pearl Jam Radio went live to take calls from fans and get listener reactions during the Faithfull Forum call-in show. Hoping to join the conversation? Pearl Jam Radio is opening the phone lines yet again to chat all things Gigaton today, January 15 at 6pmtomorrow, January 16 at 9am, and Friday, January 17 at 11am (all times ET).

Gigaton will be released through Pearl Jam’s own Monkeywrench Records in partnership with Republic Records, featuring production from Pearl Jam and Josh Evans.

“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,” lead guitarist Mike McCready said in a statement. “Collaborating with my bandmates on Gigaton ultimately gave me greater love, awareness, and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times.”

The band will set out on Wednesday, March 18 for a 16-date North American tour spanning March and April. Tickets are available now — see when Pearl Jam will be hitting your city below!
