While awaiting the start of the tour in support of Gigaton, Mike McCready revealed to Guitar World the next plans for Pearl Jam.
“Assuming all goes according to plan, we’ll be touring the States and Europe in 2022, and then we should be looking at making an album after that,” Mike McCready revealed to Guitar World. “So I don’t expect there to be anywhere near as long an interval before the next record comes out.”
After tours in North America and Europe, the band will continue working on the still untitled follow-up to Gigaton together with 2020 Grammy producer of the year Andrew Watt. Watt produced Eddie Vedder new studio album, Earthling, and is also part Ed’s live band, The Earthlings.
