Selling millions of records has helped more than a few artists mellow out, but watching their debut album climb the charts only made Pearl Jam angrier. They took out their aggression on the follow-up, 1993's 'Vs.'
Pearl Jam's 'Lightning Bolt' album is set to arrive on Oct. 15, but it was a lengthy journey getting to the completion of the band's latest disc. To give fans a little insight into the creation of the effort, Pearl Jam have posted a nine-minute short film shot by directing pal Danny Clinch.
What looked like a lost night turned out to be one to remember for Pearl Jam fans who attended the band's show last night (July 19) at Chicago's famed Wrigley Field. Seven songs into the set, torrential rain and lightning forced a nearly three-hour delay, but the band eventually returned to the stage to deliver an epic show that included two brand-new tunes.
Pearl Jam have released "Mind Your Manners", the first single off of their upcoming album, Lightning Bolt, due out on October 15, 2013. It sounds like old school Pearl Jam! Take a listen and see what you think:
Pearl Jam are now in the homestretch of recording their next album and guitarist Mike McCready has some hefty expectations for what's to come. He told Seattle's KIRO Radio that he foresees the still untitled disc as being "way better than 'Backspacer.''
Seattle will be well represented whenever Heart enters the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month. It was previously revealed that Soundgarden's Chris Cornell would induct the classic rock band, and now it has been announced that fellow Seattle music vets Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains and guitarist Mike McCready from Pearl Jam will perform with Heart at the induction ceremony.
Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd recently revealed he was finishing up work on his second solo album, but he's not the only member of the band staying busy during the group's hiatus. Guitarist Mike Einziger has landed a pair of high profile guest turns -- working with Pearl Jam on their new album and with Hans Zimmer on the score for 'The Lone Ranger' film.
Opened in 1914, Wrigley Field in Chicago is one of the last classic American ballparks. Pearl Jam are one of the greatest and most important rock bands of the modern era. So what do you get when these two cultural touchstones from different eras collide? The fastest concert sellout in the venue's history, that's what.
