Pearl Jam have unveiled the cover art, release date, and first single from their tenth studio album Lightning Bolt. The Seattle quintet's new album will hit stores Oct. 15 with "Mind Your Manners" available digitally as the first single from the record. We still don't have the complete tracklisting for the record and I'm sure more details will soon emerge. What we do know is Brendan O'Brien, who has helmed a number of previous Pearl Jam outings, produced Lightning Bolt. This is the band's first album in four years, following the 2009 release Backspacer.
The band announced the first leg of their US tour earlier this week in advance of the album announcement.
Stay tuned for my review of "Mind Your Manners" and additional news from Camp Pearl Jam as we get it!
