VIDEO: Pearl Jam guitarist explains inspiration behind Mind Your Manners

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready explains the inspiration behind the band’s new single, “Mind Your Manners”, in a newly-released video.

“It’s my attempt to try to make a really hard edge-type Dead Kennedys-sounding song,” says McCready. “I wanted that kind of aggression and that kind of feel in that song, so I came up with the lyrics ‘Mind Your Manners’. Jeff [Ament] brought in a lot of his real punk rock kind of bass ideas of starting and stopping…the kind of school he comes from is that; I came from more of the metal thing but always wanted to dive into the punk side.”

"Mind Your Manners" is the elad single from Pearl Jam’s forthcoming album, “Lightning Bolt”, due October 15.

Produced by Brendan O’Brien, the project the Seattle band’s first studio album since 2009’s “Backspacer.”

Pearl Jam will kick off a fall North American tour October 11 in Pittsburgh.
