Years after their GRAMMY award-winning album Lightning Bolt was released, Pearl Jam are back with a new album underway titled Gigaton. Gigaton will be the band’s eleventh studio album, set for release under Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records on March 27, 2020.
On their website, lead guitarist Mike McCready 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.
Along with the album announcement, Pearl Jam also announced that they will also start touring in North America from March until April and will be starting it off in Toronto on March 18.
