It’s Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, Mike McCready and Matt Cameron as you’ve never seen them before.
A day after releasing the second single from their forthcoming new album, Gigaton, Pearl Jam shared a visual for “Superblood Wolfmoon.” The music video features an animated version of the band performing a “tiny concert.”
The new song is a logical progression from Pearl Jam’s work on their last two studio albums. “Superblood Wolfmoon” reveals their well-documented punk influences, which is a change from lead single “Dance of the Clairvoyants,” a new wave tribute.
Pearl Jam originally teased “Superblood Wolfmoon” using an augmented-reality experience unlocked on their web app. Fans could point their cellphone cameras at the moon and hear a preview of the song.
Gigaton will officially be unveiled on March 27th and will contain 12 tracks. The band shared the list in an earlier social media post. The only other song we’ve gotten a preview of is “River Cross,” which soundtracked a Verizon Super Bowl ad.
Just before the album is released, Pearl Jam will embark on their first tour since 2018. The North American leg begins March 18th in Toronto and runs through April 19th in Oakland.
