Back in 1990, Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell was the creative force behind the band Temple of the Dog in tribute to his lost friend and Mother Love Bone frontman Andrew Wood who passed away the same year. Temple of the Dog was a musical juggernaut chock full of talent with Stone Gossard on guitar, Jeff Ament on bass (both former members of Mother Love Bone) along with Matt Cameron and Eddie Vedder. A super group by definition, the collective released one self-titled disc and only played live one time together.
Pearl Jam is gearing up for the release of ‘Lightning Bolt,’ their 10th studio album, with a new short film. The nine-minute piece was directed by famed photographer Danny Clinch and features interview clips with guests director Judd Apatow (‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin’), ‘Portlandia’ star and Wild Flag vocalist/guitarist Carrie Brownstein, former New Orleans Saints star Steve Gleason and surfing champion Mark Richards.
The last week has likely felt like the equivalent of Christmas for Pearl Jam fans, first with the band announcing a fall 2013 North American tour run, and now just days later, as a second countdown on their website expired, Pearl Jam have thrilled fans with a brand new single called ‘Mind Your Manners.'
I have been staring at the PJ countdown clock for awhile now. Almost like the way you stare at a microwave as it is cooking a burrito. The clock has reached zero and the announcement has been made of a brand new album, due out October 15.
There is buzz in the Pearl Jam universe, as the veteran rockers have set a countdown clock on their official website. There's been talk of a new Pearl Jam album for several months now, and it looks like Monday, July 8, might be the day the band's fans hear the first official news of a new disc and possibly a new tour.
While most of the focus has been on if Pearl Jam will release their new album in 2013 or 2014, the attention is now shifting to when we might hear the first taste of new music from the band. According to an AllAccess.com posting that has since been removed, Pearl Jam is alleged to be targeting a July 16 premiere for a new song.
Pearl Jam fans will be happy to know that the band is progressing quite well with their next album. In fact, in a new interview with Guerrillacandy.com, guitarist Stone Gossard reveals that the end of recording their next album is in sight.
