Pearl Jam are back!

The Seattle grunge legends will release their 11th studio album, 'Gigaton', on March 27th.

Eddie Vedder and co's much-anticipated follow-up to 2013's 'Lightning Bolt' will arrive during their North American tour and ahead of their BST Hyde Park show in London on July 10, as part of their European run.

The 'Alive' rockers explore the "need for human connection in these times" on the upcoming LP.

Guitarist Mike McCready announced: “Making this record was a long journey.

“It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption.

"Collaborating with my bandmates on 'Gigaton' ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times."

The stunning artwork features Canadian photographer, filmmaker, and marine biologist Paul Nicklen’s photo 'Ice Waterfall' taken in Svalbard, Norway.

'Gigaton' is available for pre-order now at

The first single, 'Dance of the Clairvoyants', will be released shortly.
