Pearl Jam Issue Album Update
Guitarist Stone Gossard reveals that the band are more than halfway through
Stone Gossard told Billboard.com "We really want to finish a record this year. [It's] now between half and three quarters done, but we got some new material and we're excited about hopefully doing some more work on that later in the year."
Among that new material, he divulges, is a brand new hard-edged rocker by fellow Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, "that's fantastic that reminds me of Motorhead. I hope that that one is in the mix coming up."
There's no release date for the follow up to 2009's "Backspacer," but Gossard explains that the band hopes it will be out in the first half of 2013, "if all goes according to plan."
