British Summer Time 2014 - July 4th


The countdown on Pearl Jam’s website has finally hit zero and with it comes news that the band will release their 10th studio album, Lightning Bolt, on October 15th. Helmed by the band’s longtime producer Brendan O’Brien (who’s also worked with artists including Bruce Springsteen, Audioslave and the Gaslight Anthem), Lighting Bolt follows up the band’s last effort, 2009’s Backspacer. Preceding the album announcement, Pearl Jam revealed a 24-date North American trek: the first leg kicks off in Pittsburgh on October 11th and will wrap up in New Orleans with their previously announced headlining slot at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience. Leg two begins November 15th in Dallas and ends with a Seattle homecoming on December 6th. Tickets go on sale July 26th. (via Rolling Stone Magazine)
