Pearl Jam update new album plans

Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament is sharing an update on the band’s next studio album, which was previewed in March with the release of the single, “Can’t Deny Me.”

Ament tells the Kyle Meredith With... podcast that the group needs "a good solid six to eight weeks carved out where we're just recording all these ideas that we have", while adding that that time won't be available until this fall – after they've completed their summer tours of Europe and select US stadiums.

“The one thing we have working against us is the upcoming tour,” explains Ament, “the other thing we have working against us is it takes three or four months to do a vinyl version of any record," before adding, “2019 is probably safe to say” for when the follow-up to 2013’s “Lightning Bolt” will surface.

Ament is currently making the rounds to various media outlets to promote his newly-released third solo album, “Heaven/Hell.”

Pearl Jam will next be seen on a European tour that will begin in Amsterdam on June 12 before launching a series of US stadium shows in their hometown of Seattle, WA in August, where they have partnered with The Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) to host an exhibit of their 28-year history.

The “Pearl Jam: Home & Away” event at MoPOP will showcase memorabilia from the band’s warehouse, featuring personal instruments, equipment, stage props, original typewritten lyrics and notebooks, original poster and album art and set lists….and, fans will be able to step inside a piece of Pearl Jam history in a photo op featuring the towering letters from the front of their 1991 album debut album, “Ten.”
