Song is featured on upcoming Gigaton album
Pearl Jam has unveiled the official video for “Superblood Wolfmoon.” The song is the latest single to be released from the group’s anxiously awaited new album, Gigaton, arriving March 27th via Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records.
The grunge rockers teamed up with D.I.Y. animator Keith Ross — renowned for his homegrown @TinyConcert Instagram channel. The channel has become popular for “bite-sized animated music videos” drawn with a ballpoint pen and harnessing the punk energy and imagination of the songs.
Popular for animating excerpts of songs, this marks the first time Keith delivered a video that runs the entire duration of a track. The black-and-white visual intercuts a stunning vision of the moon with hand-drawn clips of the band performing. The animated counterparts capture each respective member’s spirit as the track reflects the adventurous and arresting spirit of “Superblood Wolfmoon.”
“Superblood Wolfmoon” follows “Dance of the Clairvoyants,” the album’s first single. The video was released earlier this month.
As previously announced, Pearl Jam will release their much-anticipated eleventh studio album, Gigaton, on Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records on March 27th in the US. Internationally, the album will be released and distributed by Universal Music Group. Produced by Josh Evans and Pearl Jam, Gigaton marks the band’s first studio album since GRAMMY award-winning, Lightning Bolt, which was released on October 15, 2013.
Gigaton’s cover features Canadian photographer, filmmaker, and marine biologist Paul Nicklen’s photo “Ice Waterfall.” Taken in Svalbard, Norway, this image features the Nordaustlandet ice cap gushing high volumes of meltwater.
In support of Gigaton, Pearl Jam will embark on their first leg of North American tour in March and April. The 16 date tour kicks-off on March 18th in Toronto and wraps with a two-date stint in Oakland April 18-19th. The group will perform at Harlem’s world-famous Apollo Theater in a special invitation-only concert for SiriusXM subscribers and Pandora listeners on Thursday, March 26th. The exclusive concert marks the first time that Pearl Jam has performed at the iconic venue and their first concert in New York City in almost three years.
Pearl Jam’s North American tour is in addition to the band’s previously announced European summer tour.
