Pearl Jam has set up a hotline at 585-20-PEARL (585-207-3275) where fans can preview the band’s upcoming album Gigaton.
Fans who call the number will hear a message saying, “Hello, you’ve reached the Pearl Jam Gigaton hotline. Press 1 to leave a message. Press 2 to opt in to receive updates from the band and preview the new album before it’s out on March 27th.” The group’s 11th studio effort and first since 2013 arrives this Friday (March 27th).
The band initially planned to preview the album with a special audio-visual experience at over 200 Dolby Atmos-equipped theaters around the world on Wednesday (March 25th), but that event was canceled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Pearl Jam also postponed its spring U.S. tour due to the outbreak. The 16-date trek was scheduled to kick off on March 18th in Toronto and wrap with a two-date stint in Oakland on April 18th and April 19th. The group has promised to reschedule the shows for a later date.
