Pearl Jam Announces New Album <i>Lightning Bolt</i>, Releases First Single

After posting a mysterious countdown on their website last week and announcing an extensive North American tour, it’s been rumored that a new album from legendary Seattle rockers Pearl Jam is on the way, and now it has been confirmed.

The band updated their website today to announce a forthcoming tenth studio album called Lightning Bolt, which will be released later this fall. The record is produced by Brendan O’Brien, who has worked with the band on eight previous albums, including 2009’s Backspacer.

Along with the album news, the band unveiled the record’s first single, “Mind Your Manners,” a seriously raging punk-tinged anthem that is sure to get fans pumped up about the forthcoming album.

Lightning Bolt is available on Oct. 15 on Republic Records. Listen to the new single above, and catch the band’s recently announced tour dates below.
