The countdown clock on Pearl Jam‘s official website ticked down to zero Monday, unlocking news of a fall 2013 North American tour. Pearl Jam are scheduled to play 24 dates on the just-annouced trek, starting Oct. 11 in Pittsburgh and ending Dec. 6 in their hometown of Seattle. The bad news being, no dates in the Midwest were included. Meanwhile, a second countdown has started ticking on the band’s site, perhaps suggesting that information on a new album will be released may be released shortly.
