Pearl Jam Announce New LP ‘Gigaton’ And North American Tour

Pearl Jam are back with a new album! The band’s 11th album and their first in five years, Gigaton, drops March 27th via their own record label, Monkeywrench Records in partnership with Republic Records.

“Making this record was a long journey,” guitarist Mike McCready said in a statement. “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.”

The album’s lead single “Dance of the Clairvoyants” will be released in the coming weeks. Pre-order Gigaton here.

Pearl Jam also announced a North American tour in support of the new LP. Shows kick off March 18th in Toronto and wrap up with a two-night stint in Oakland, California starting April 18th.

Tickets go on sale Friday, January 24th. A Ten Club ticket pre-sale as well as Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan entry begins today. The band previously announced their summer European tour. Check out all their dates below.
