Countdown to new music from Pearl Jam?

by Otto Man

Pearl Jam has set a countdown clock on their official website. There’s been talk of a new Pearl Jam album for several months now, and it looks like Monday, July 8, might be the day the band’s fans hear the first official news of a new disc and possibly a new tour. The countdown points to some sort of announcement during the afternoon of July 8. Recent reports suggest that the band will be unleashing a single ‘Mind Your Manners’ on July 16, while AlternativeNation.net (formerly Grunge Report) has been reporting a rumored Oct. 1 release date for a new album. Guitarist Stone Gossard recently told the Illinois Entertainer that the album was “almost done” and that “it’s going to be a great Pearl Jam record.” When the new Pearl Jam album is released, it will be the band’s first studio disc since 2009′s ‘Backspacer.’ More and more and more
