Iconic rock veterans Pearl Jam are making their return in 2020 with their first album in five years: The band announced their eleventh studio album, Gigaton, will arrive in the spring. Along with the new record, the band will be embarking on a tour across North America and Europe, which will feature support from Pixies, White Reaper, and Idles.
Gigaton was a long time in the making, and guitarist Mike McCready hopes the record will bring the band’s musical redemption. “Making this record was a long journey,” 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.”
