A reader named PJ left a series of comments on our May 31st story about Pearl Jam’s Mind Your Manners single.
He claimed that when a countdown clock showed up on Pearl Jam’s website, the band would announce their full fall tour a week later. He said the date of the announcement would be July 8th. He also claimed that the tour will take place in October, and that the album is likely to be released before the tour and that it could come out on October 1st. A song from Ukulele Songs will supposedly be on the new album.
PJ also just gave his review of the songs he heard from the album in the comments section of our story from yesterday, “The last two records have been billed in the pre album hype machine as their best since Vitalogy… except this one legitimately is. I’ve heard 4 songs. Shit is hot fire.” He also reiterated the points he made in late May regarding the announcement.
What is confirmed is that the lead single from the new album will be “Mind Your Manners” and that it will be released to radio on July 16th. Keep a lookout in the comments section on this story to see if any additional news could be leaked.
