Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament releases his third solo album Heaven/Hell next week (May 10). Ament spoke to NME about Pearl Jam’s upcoming tour and album plans.
“The last time that the band got together and did some writing, I was just finishing up this so there was a week or two where I was doing both. But I’m not sure where we’re at, I’m not sure where the band’s at. Things got busy with tour dates. We start rehearsals in about 10 days, so thats probably when we’ll start throwing around ideas about maybe performing old songs we haven’t played in a while or covers. We’ll certainly play Can’t Deny Me”.
