Pearl Jam Announce New Album ‘Gigaton,’ North American Tour

Pearl Jam have announced their 11th studio album, Gigaton, which arrives March 27 via Monkeywrench/Republic.

Gigaton follows Pearl Jam’s 2013 album, Lightning Bolt. Gigaton is available for pre-order now at pearljam.com. The first single, “Dance of the Clairvoyants,” will be released in the coming weeks.

“Making this record was a long journey,” explains guitarist Mike McCready in a press release. “It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption.”

He added, “Collaborating with my bandmates on Gigaton ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times.”

Pearl Jam also announced plans to embark on a tour of North America in support of Gigaton. The 16-date tour kicks off on March 18 in Toronto and wraps with a two-date stint in Oakland April 18-19.

The North American tour is in addition to the band’s previously announced European summer tour.
