Watch Pearl Jam’s Electrifying ‘Mind Your Manners’ Video
Seattle vets tap director Danny Clinch for wild 'Lightning Bolt' clip
Pearl Jam are careening toward their 10th studio album on the strength of their frantic, fiery “Mind Your Manners,” a song which openly flouts its own advice. If the Seattle grunge beacons are gonna call their new one Lightning Bolt (particularly while drummer Matt Cameron moonlights in Drumgasm with skins-psycho Zach Hill), well, they might as well get punk with it. Revered photographer Danny Clinch directs the song’s new video, which fittingly laces the noisy track with quickly shifting footage of explosions, cartoon bursts of electricity, and dramatic agit-prop imagery. The 12-track Lightning Bolt is expected October 15 via Universal Republic and is available for pre-order now. No other song titles have yet been revealed.
