Rock legends Pearl Jam have revealed their eleventh studio album, Gigaton, set for release on March 27th through Monkeywrench Records / Republic Records / UMG.

“Produced by Josh Evans and Pearl Jam, Gigaton marks the band’s first studio album since GRAMMY award-winning Lightning Bolt, which was released on October 15, 2013,” explains a press release.

Lead guitarist and backing vocalist Mike McCready adds, “Making this record was a long journey, It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption. Collaborating with my bandmates on Gigaton ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times.”

In support of Gigaton, Pearl Jam will embark on a North American tour starting in late winter and running through spring. A show in NYC at Madison Square Garden happens on March 30 [TIX].
