Pearl Jam Fans Get Bad Anniversary Album News


Pearl Jam Yield 25th Anniversary Edition Translucent Red and Black Hi-melt vinyl has been delayed till October.

In February this year, Pearl Jam announced a 25th anniversary reissue package for their album ‘Yield’. The Seattle grunge icons’ fifth studio album came out in February 1998 and featured the singles ‘Do The Evolution’ and ‘Given To Fly’.

To celebrate its birthday, the album will be reissued on translucent red and black vinyl via Vinyl Me, Please. It will be the first release from the company’s new audiophile-grade pressing plant in Denver, Colorado. It’s anticipated to begin shipping in late summer.

For streaming services, ‘Yield’ was released in spatial audio on Spotify, Apple Music and more.

Meanwhile, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine has weighed in on the troubling behavior trends in younger audiences at live music shows, including throwing things at artists to catch their attention.

“If people don’t like you, they’re gonna throw shit,” Mustaine told Sweden’s SVT in a new interview. “Maybe it’s graduated from rotten tomatoes to dildos; I don’t know. But if you’re giving them a great show, they’re not gonna do that — they’re not gonna do that. So don’t get up there acting like a spoiled fucking brat and telling them not to throw stuff.”

Several high-profile performers, including Bebe Rexha and Kelsea Ballerini, have been hit by items thrown at them while they have been performing over the summer, in some cases harming the performer in acts that could be deemed assault and may lead to criminal charges or other legal consequences for offenders.

Mustaine added: “I don’t have to worry about it. Plus my eyesight is that bad, I probably won’t see anything flying through the air until it’s too late.”
