Pearl Jam has been selected as the official Record Store Day Ambassadors for 2019. Record Store Day takes place on April 13th at independent record stores around the world.
The band are longtime lovers of the spinning black circle (despite cutting off the beloved vinyl Christmas singles for fanclub members this year), and with a new album in the works the news is a promising sign for fans hoping for PJ activity in 2019.
Check out an announcement from guitarist Mike McCready, as well as footage from the band’s 2006 surprise performance at Seattle’s legendary Easy Street Records:
