Pearl Jam will release their much-anticipated eleventh studio album, Gigaton, on Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records on March 27. 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 Oct. 15, 2013. The band will make an appearance in Ottawa at Richcraft Live at Canadian Tire Centre in support of their new album on Friday, March 20.
Tickets can be purchased by visiting ticketmaster.ca or canadiantirecentre.com. This is a MOBILE TICKET DELIVERY ONLY tour and tickets will not be available for purchase in person at the Canadian Tire Centre box office, outlets or over the phone. All tickets will be sent via mobile digital delivery and are non-transferable.
Gigaton is available for pre-order now at pearljam.com. The first single, Dance of the Clairvoyants, will be released in the coming weeks.
“Making this record was a long journey,” explains Mike McCready. “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.”
Gigaton’s cover features Canadian photographer, filmmaker and marine biologist Paul Nicklen’s photo “Ice Waterfall.” Taken in Svalbard, Norway, this image features the Nordaustlandet ice cap gushing high volumes of meltwater.
