Three-and-a-half years after the release of their last album — the longest stretch of time the band has waited between releasing albums — Pearl Jam will deliver its self-titled eighth studio album on May 2 via J Records.
Pearl Jam will be led by the single “World Wide Suicide” which will be available for a two-day free download via the band’s website, beginning at 6 A.M. EST on March 8. For the follow-up to 2002’s Riot Act, Pearl Jam reunited with that album’s producer, Adam Kasper.
Tour dates are forthcoming.
