“Making this record was a long journey,” guitarist Mike McCready said in a statement. “It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption. Collaborating with my bandmates on Gigaton ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times.”

In addition, the band will hit the road in support of Gigaton, with the tour kicking off on March 18 in Toronto. Other Canadian dates include Ottawa (March 20), Quebec City (March 22), Hamilton (March 24). From there, Pearl Jam will embark on a European tour throughout the summer.
