Pearl Jam will release their eleventh studio album, ‘Gigaton’, on March 27.
Produced by Josh Evans and Pearl Jam, Gigaton marks the band’s first studio album since Grammy award-winning ‘Lightning Bolt’.
The first single, Dance of the Clairvoyants, will be released in the coming weeks.
“Making this record was a long journey,” lead guitarist Mike McCready said.
“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.”
In support of Gigaton , Pearl Jam will embark on a 16-date North American tour in March and April.
The tour kicks-off on March 18 in Toronto and wraps with a two-date stint in Oakland April 18-19.
