Pearl Jam: Gigaton - 3/27/20 (New Album + Tour)



Pearl Jam will release their much-anticipated eleventh studio album, Gigaton, on Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records on March 27, 2020 in the US. Internationally, the album will be released and distributed by Universal Music Group. Produced by Josh Evans and Pearl Jam, Gigaton marks the band’s first studio album since GRAMMY award-winning Lightning Bolt.Gigaton is available for pre-order now at www.pearljam.com. The first single, “Dance of the Clairvoyants”, will be released in the coming weeks.

“Making this record was a long journey,” explains Mike McCready. “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."

Gigaton’s cover features Canadian photographer, filmmaker, and marine biologist Paul Nicklen’s photo “Ice Waterfall.” Taken in Svalbard, Norway, this image features the Nordaustlandet ice cap gushing high volumes of meltwater.

sigh...looks like a road trip to STL.

I'm sure they'll do a Wrigley show on the 2nd leg of the tour, and I'll go, but damn I hate concerts at that place.

I'll try for MSG and Baltimore. Probably will end up with nothing. They make it really hard to get tickets to anything big these. Verified Fan.. random queues during the onsale...

Been a long time since I've seen them live. Might look at a road trip to Hamilton.

Finally! Looking forward to this, weird 80s album cover and all.

Everything within driving distance is on a very busy work week so I'll have to wait for the next leg of the tour.

I have zero confidence that I will be able to get any.

I'm assuming there will be a large second leg in the fall.

I should have kept my Ten Club membership active. Thatís probably the best shot at getting tickets, but at the same time they reduced the benefits last year. Plus I rarely get a shot at going to shows because they never tour the area where I live and hardly get around close enough where Iím able to drive. Iíve seen Eddie once solo and Pearl Jam as a group once.

Wow, I was just wondering the other day if they were ever gonna do another album. Seems like forever since Backspacer came out.

<- checks google to see how long it's been... oh they had an album since then that I totally missed.

Love the Gigaton cover.

My parents made me listen to a lot of Christian rock music as a kid in the early 80's and the cover strangely reminds me of that.

Pearl Jam is not a band I would have expected to be culling sounds from the 80's renaissance. It's not a bad tune but seems a little too out of character for them. Also not really strong enough to be a lead single.

I kinda dig Dance of the Clairvoyants. Itís a different sound for them, which is cool to see them experimenting a bit.

I'm not sure how I feel about "Dance of the Clairvoyants."

Sounds like one of those youtube mash-ups where someone took Vedder's vocal track from an old Pearl Jam song and put it over another song.

These are probably fightin' words, but I think Pearl Jam started crawling up their own ass after "Vs." I can take about half of "Vitalogy," but everything after that bores the shit out of me.

That was dreadful. The first three are still some of my most played albums of all time but they lost me after that.

I feel like based on the first single this album will be somewhat more experimental. It definitely comes across different than their recent songs/albums. Iíve listened to it a few times and am liking it. At first it wasnít what I was expecting, but after listening to it more itís pretty good.

Iíve always felt the same. Ten is absolute magic, and Vs. was a spirited follow up but I was very disappointed with Vitalogy and never really got back into them despite hearing every subsequent record.
