This is no doubt awesome news for Pearl Jam fans. Even if they aren't coming anywhere close to where I live, it's still exciting! I can only imagine what the news was to people who live closer.
They weren't finished there, however. Another countdown immediately began when the tour was announced, this time for only 3 days. Yesterday, this new countdown expired and what news was unlocked was long awaited awesome-ness; 'Lightening Bolt', the band's 10th studio album and first since 2009, will be released in October!
Better still, not only did the band announce the upcoming album, they also released a brand new single from it! You can, and should, listen to 'Mind Your Manners' below:
Awesome eh? Yeah, I think so too!
The band has another countdown up and running now as well, but we have to wait a tad longer for this one to run out. It's set for album release day, October 15th, just 93 short days away.
