Pearl Jam Plan Possible 2016 Album Release
Pearl Jam may be hitting the recording studio soon with eyes on a possible 2016 album release. Bassist Jeff Ament told Vice.com that the band ”will probably try and get another record going in the next year.”
The band plays nine dates in South America this fall, beginning November 4 in Santiago, Chile, with concerts scheduled through Nov. 28 in Mexico City.
Pearl Jam’s last trip to the recording studio resulted in the 2013 album, Lightning Bolt. Since 2000 the group has been on an unofficial album-every-four-years-or-so schedule. Ament and his PJ band members have also kept themselves busy in between tours and albums. Ament was actually interviewed by Vice to discuss his personal funding of numerous skateboard parks, primarily in South Dakota and Montana (Ament grew up in Montana and is into skateboarding). Several of the parks are on Native American reservations.
In the meantime, Pearl Jam Mike McCready recently teamed with several other Seattle grunge-rock stalwarts on a one-off Stooges tribute show with a band called Raw Power. And vocalist Eddie Vedder recently contributed a song to Cameron Crowe’s upcoming movie Aloha.
