Pearl Jam announce new album 'Gigaton'

Following on from their announcement as the next headliner for the British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park this year, Pearl Jam have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'Gigaton' is the band's first since their 2013 LP 'Lightning Bolt, was produced by Josh Evans and the group themselves, and is set to be released on the 27th March via Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records.

Speaking about their upcoming release, Mike McCready said, “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."

Pearl Jam will be performing at London's Hyde Park on the 10th July, with tickets available at www.bst-hydepark.com See below for the full list of forthcoming European tour dates.
