Pearl Jam “Running”

Happy Friday!

How about Punk Pearl jam to make it even better?

Pearl Jam just released the 2nd song off of their upcoming album “Dark Matter”, and holy cow, they weren’t kidding when they said they were going for a harder sound on this record.

I am LOVING it!

Again, I was never the biggest Pearl Jam fan in the past. I mean, no disrespect, but I just didn’t vibe with their sound (except for “Better Man”- GREAT song), but I have to say, I am definitely digging their harder sound. Reminds me of their early days as a band. I am so glad they are bringing that sound back, and I can’ wait to hear more.

“Dark Matter” will be released April 19th via MonkeyWrench Records/Republic Records.


Eddie Vedder and Post Malone Peform “Better Man” for Charity

Earlier this month, Eddie Vedder and his wife Jill held a benefit at the Humble Baron at Nearest Green Distillery in Shelbyville, TN for the EBResearchPartnership which supports funding research to treat and cure Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).

The event raised over 1 million dollars for the cause, which isn’t shocking with performances like this one featuring Eddie Vedder and Post Malone on “Better Man”- my favorite Pearl Jam song!

How great was that? Seriously, I’m becoming more and more of a Post Malone fan every day.

Also, Eddie still sounds great.

This whole thing just made my heart happy!

Ok, soooo…. a Post Malone/Eddie Vedder offical collab now, please?  Just putting that out into the universe…


Pearl Jam “Dark Matter”

We knew we were getting new Pearl Jam soon, and lead singer Eddie Vedder said to expect a “harder” sound on this record, which, I was prety pumped for.

Well… got a pleasant surprise this morning when they dropped the title track of their 12th studio album “Dark Matter”, and it kills.

Damn. That’s good.

It’s reminds me of the early Pearl Jam days, which is not a bad thing.

Now, honestly, I’ve not always been the biggest Pearl Jam fan- I like some of their songs, but I don’t worship at the altar of Eddie Vedder like some of my friends do, but I appreciate them as a band, and this new single is really badass.

Rock isn’t dead.

Sorry Gene Simmons.
