Pearl Jam Announce New Album and First Australian Dates In A Decade

Pearl Jam will return to Australia and New Zealand for the first time since the Big Day Out of 2014 in November and there is a new album Dark Matter also on the way.

First, the new record ‘Dark Matter’ was previewed with the release of the title track.

Pearl Jam is Eddie Vedder [vocals], Jeff Ament [bass], Stone Gossard[rhythm guitar], Mike McCready [lead guitar], and Matt Cameron [drums. The album was produced Andrew Watt.

Eddie Vedder said: “I’m getting chills, because I have good memories. We’re still looking for ways to communicate. We’re at this time in our lives when you could do it or you could not do it, but we still care about putting something out there that is meaningful and we hopefully think is our best work. No hyperbole, I think this is our best work.”

Jeff Ament added, “What Ed said about getting us in a room at this point, we felt like we were about to make a really important record. A lot of that had to do with the atmosphere Andrew set up. He has encyclopedic knowledge of our history, not only as a band and how we wrote songs, but as players. He could pinpoint things we did on old songs to the point where I was like, ‘What the fuck is he talking about?’ His excitement was contagious. He’s a force. I just want to say thanks for keeping us on track. I couldn’t be prouder of us as a band. I feel so grateful for the fans, but mostly for my brothers and these people I’ve made music with.”

Dark Matter will be released on 19 April 2024.
