Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard recently provided an update on the progress of the band’s new album via Pearl Jam Online.
During The Writer’s Block with David Fricke, Stone Gossard & Regan Hagar SiriusXM Spectrum on August 17, Stone Gossard recently said: “We are almost finished with the record. It’s not quite finished yet. But it’s almost there & we had a great time.”
Meanwhile, it has come to light that 3rd Secret, the new band featuring Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic and Soundgarden and Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron, has shared a new performance video for the song “Queens”.
The track is taken from 3rd Secret’s second full-length album, “The 2nd 3rd Secret”, which came out on June 23. It has been noted that the group, whose lineup is rounded out by Bubba Dupree, guitarist for D.C. hardcore outfit Void and alt-metal supergroup Hater (also featuring Cameron), and vocalists Jennifer Johnson and Jillian Raye (Novoselic’s bandmate in Giants In The Trees), surprised-released its self-titled debut album in April 2022, recorded and mixed by longtime Seattle producer Jack Endino, and played its first live show that same month at the Museum Of Pop Culture in Seattle.
The “Queens” performance video was filmed on August 6, 2023 at Avast! Recording Co. in Seattle, Washington.
