Pearl Jam to premiere Dark Matter album in indie record stores this weekend

Pearl Jam will premiere its new album, “Dark Matter”, in indie record stores around the world on Sunday, April 14.

"International Stores added!,” says the band about the event. “Join us at one of the indie record stores to slip through the portal early to have a listen to ‘Dark Matter’. Hear the entire album before it's released, land on some exclusive giveaways and pre-order 'Dark Matter' at your local store."

The record store parties take place two days before Pearl Jam will preview “Dark Matter” in a global cinema premiere event on April 16.

Set to preview in select cinemas around the world, the communal experience will play “Dark Matter” in its entirety twice: first in a dark cinema, and then again with added visuals.

Distributed by Abramorama, “Dark Matter” will come to life in over 800 locations worldwide, including US theaters AMC, Regal, Cinemark, Landmark, Marcus, Cinepolis, Harkins, Alamo Drafthouse, Chinese Cineplex, IFC, and more; additionally, AMC and other cinemas will feature Dolby Atmos showings.

Worldwide, it graces theaters in over 30 countries, appearing in more than 450 locations across Mexico, the UK, Spain, Netherlands, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, New Zealand, and Poland, to name a few.

Tickets are now on sale for 500+ theaters worldwide; for more details, visit

Due April 19 and produced by Andrew Watt, the band recorded “Dark Matter” at Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, CA in just three weeks.
