Pearl Jam - Lightning Bolt [LP]

This item is temporary out of stock. Contact us for special order options.

Pearl Jam rose from the ashes of Mother Love Bone to become the most popular American rock & roll band of the '90s. After vocalist Andrew Wood overdosed on heroin in 1990, guitarist Stone Gossard and bassist Jeff Ament assembled a new band, bringing in Mike McCready on lead guitar and recording a demo with Soundgarden's Matt Cameron on drums. Thanks to future Pearl Jam drummer Jack Irons, the demo found its way to a 25-year-old San Diego surfer named Eddie Vedder, who overdubbed vocals and original lyrics and was subsequently invited to join the band (then christened Mookie Blaylock after the NBA player). Dave Krusen was hired as the full-time drummer shortly thereafter, completing the original lineup. Renaming themselves Pearl Jam, the band recorded their debut album, Ten, in the beginning of 1991.

Produced by frequent collaborator Brendan O'Brien, Lightning Bolt marks Pearl Jam's first studio album since the highly acclaimed Backspacer, which was released in September of 2009. The 12-song set will be preceded by the explosive lead single ''Mind Your Manners.''

Producer Brendan O'Brien joins the band on the keyboard for the ballad 'Future Days'.

'Mind Your Manners,' a Ramones-esque punk riot... saw Vedder crouched low, whipping his mike stand back and forth as drummer Matt Cameron fired away steps behind him. 'Lightning Bolt,' a four-four rocker which Vedder introduced as 'Lightning,' made its live debut on Friday, and spills a tale of a witchy woman ('she comes on like a storm'); it also features a characteristically soaring solo courtesy of guitarist Mike McCready.'' - Dan Hyman, Rolling Stone, ''Pearl Jam Debut New Material at Wrigley Field'', July 20, 2013
