Pearl Jam released their much-anticipated tenth studio album, Lightning Bolt, via Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records on October 15, 2013 in the United States. Internationally, the album was released on October 14, 2013 and distributed by Universal Music Group International.
Lightning Bolt debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart as well as #1 on iTunes in over 50 countries. It is available now at www.pearljam.com and via iTunes.
In 1991, Pearl Jam's debut album, Ten, catapulted the little-known Seattle-based band into superstardom. Ten studio albums, hundreds of unique live performances and official live concert bootleg releases later, the band continue to be critically acclaimed and commercially successful -- with over 60 million albums sold worldwide.
Over the past twenty-two years, Pearl Jam has remained a major force in rock and roll, as much for its aggressive loyalty to its social and political principles and restless experimentation as for its rock radio staples and bestselling albums.
In 2011, Pearl Jam celebrated their 20-year anniversary with a destination weekend in Alpine Valley, WI and world tour. The band also released the film Pearl Jam Twenty along with an accompanying book and soundtrack as part of the anniversary celebration.
