(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Pearl Jam are scheduled to play their first UK show in six years, with an appearance at the intimate Astoria club on April 20th.
The band last played Britain in 2000, with two sold out nights at London’s Wembley Arena.
Pearl Jam is set to release their new self-titled album on May 2nd. It will be the band’s first studio release since 2002’s “Riot Act.”
Asked about the record, the band commented: “We've got all the instruments going full force, yet coexisting. It's like we took our aggressions and shaped something positive from them in a very direct manner. Though we'd qualify most of the record as hard-driving, the two quiet ones ('Parachutes' and 'Come Back') could be our best attempts yet at pulling the disguises off of loss of life, and even love.” –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
