Pearl Jam will release their much-anticipated eleventh studio album, Gigaton, on Monkeywrench Records/ Republic Records on March 27, 2020 in the US. 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,'' 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.
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.
