Pearl Jam Launch New Channel On Sirius XM

Earlier this week, we reported to you that Pearl Jam announced a 24-date North American tour, with rumors swirling that the announcement of a full-length album was soon to follow.  Well, PJ fans, the rumors were indeed true—the band is set to release their tenth album this fall.

On October 15—four days after the start of their just-announced tour—the band will release Lightning Bolt, their first full-length LP since Backspacer was released in 2009.  To herald the new disc (for those of you that still actually buy hard copies of albums), the band released both an album teaser and a new single, “Mind Your Manners.”  You can check them both out below, along with the previously-published tour dates.
