PEARL JAM will release its much-anticipated eleventh studio album, "Gigaton", on March 27 via Monkeywrench /Republic Records in the U.S. Produced by Josh Evans and PEARL JAM, "Gigaton" marks the band's first studio album since Grammy Award-winning "Lightning Bolt", which was released on October 15, 2013.
Mike McReady says, "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."
"Gigaton" is available for pre-order now at PearlJam.com. The first single, "Dance Of The Clairvoyants", will be released in the coming weeks.
PEARL JAM will kick off their first leg of North American tour dates in March and April. The 16-date tour kicks off on March 18 in Toronto.
