Pearl Jam Reveal Major Update On New Album


Pearl Jam members Mike McCready and Stone Gossard were interviewed on KISW yesterday, and they provided a major update on Pearl Jam’s next album. Alternative Nation transcribed their comments.

A fan asked on Twitter, “Any chance that anybody has a chance to see Pearl Jam play live soon?”

Stone said, “What did we say last time?”

Mike responded, “I’ll let Stone do the diplomatic answer on this one, because he’s better at it.”

Stone added, “I would say yes, there’s no plans though right now. We’re trying to write right now, and make a record. We’re trying to write some new songs, we’re pretty focused on hometown hanging. So, we’ll get in some shows here.”

The DJ then mentioned that when a new album comes out, shows always follow.

Gossard said, “Absolutely.”

Pearl Jam last released Lightning Bolt in 2013, and have toured intermittently since. The band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month.

Seether frontman Shaun Morgan discussed Pearl Jam’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in a recent Alternative Nation interview, “It’s about time. I mean, I think that’s a great band and they’ve consistently been a great band. They tour and they still give to their fans, and I mean they play epically long sets. I don’t know how they do that. It’s a great band that really deserves the recognition so I’m stoked, I think it’s awesome.”
