Pearl Jam Announce New Album ‘Lightning Bolt’ and Unleash First Single ‘Mind Your Manners’
The last week has likely felt like the equivalent of Christmas for Pearl Jam fans, first with the band announcing a fall 2013 North American tour run, and now just days later, as a second countdown on their website expired, Pearl Jam have thrilled fans with a brand new single called ‘Mind Your Manners.’
The aggressive track ‘Mind Your Manners’ is a full-on rocker featuring singer Eddie Vedder delivering some fast-paced verses over some scorching riffs. The best news is that the first single serves as just the beginning of new Pearl Jam tunes on the horizon. Their new disc ‘Lightning Bolt’ makes its official debut on Oct. 15.
‘Lightning Bolt’ marks Pearl Jam’s tenth studio album and was produced by Brandon O’Brien. Pre-order information went up on the official Pearl Jam website today with a variety of options available from digital download to vinyl. The band also also shared a little studio action in the teaser clip below.
Their upcoming tour will kick off just days before the release of ‘Lightning Bolt’ with the first show on Oct. 11 in Pittsburgh, Pa., with dates currently running through the beginning of December before wrapping up in Seattle, Wash.
