Pearl Jam have announced a new album, Gigaton. They have also announced some tour dates. Gigaton is due out March 27 via Monkeywrench/Republic. It will be the band’s first new album in six-and-a-half years, since the October 2013 release of Lightning Bolt. The tracklist has yet to be shared, but above is the album cover and below are the tour dates.

In 2018 Pearl Jam shared a new song, “Can’t Deny Me.” There’s no word on whether or not it’s included on the album. A press release says the album’s first official single will be titled “Dance of the Clairvoyants” and is due out in the coming weeks. Josh Evans and Pearl Jam produced the album.

Gigaton‘s cover art features “Ice Waterfall,” a photo by Canadian photographer, filmmaker, and marine biologist Paul Nicklen taken in Svalbard, Norway. A press release explains that the image “features the Nordaustlandet ice cap gushing high volumes of meltwater.”

The band’s Mike McCready had this to say about the album in the press release: “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.”
