Pearl Jam announce new album 'Dark Matter'

After returning with their long-awaited comeback LP 'Gigaton' in 2022, Pearl Jam are now back once again to announce the details of their new studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'Dark Matter' was produced by multi-GRAMMY® award winning producer Andrew Watt, is being previewed by the record's title-track, and is set to be released on the 19th April via Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records.

Speaking about the new release, the band's 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.”

While bassist 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.”
