New Pearl Jam album “Gigaton” coming out?

The 11th studio album from Pearl Jam, will soon be released, judging from the latest Ten Club newsletter. However, it’s all a bit mysterious!

The band has been hinting all day on social media, and now finally after more than six years of waiting it’s closer to being official than ever. But we’re still not quite sure what it all means!

The newsletter sent fans all over the world on a treasure hunt to find posters that via augmented reality were supposed to give some clues on the new album. 
From what we have gathered so far, the title seems to be Gigaton. And the theme seems to have something to do with climate change, judging from the imagery.

We have heard from relatively reliable sources that the album is going to be a tad quieter than what we’re used to. There has been speculation amongst fans, and perhaps a little hope too, that with the current political situation in the United States, the new album was going to be a little more on the angry side, like what we saw with Avocado.

However, from what we have heard it is not going to be so this time. We expect to get something more reflecting and thoughtful. Perhaps inspired by the increasing focus on the environment and climate change, that the band has been aware of and working with actively for years. Which does not sound bad at all.

We will keep this article updated as we find out more information.

Tour rumours: What we think we know about the Pearl Jam 2020 tour

The rumours have been circulating both on and off the great internet for quite a while now. The November Ten Club newsletter included a reminder to keep fanclub memberships up to date (and we all know what that usually means), and Santos L. Halper (Ten Club) has been reminding people to do the same on the official Pearl Jam forum.

Lately, we have been hearing the same cities and approximate days from a variety of unrelated sources, so now we dare to share what we think we know about the tour plans for 2020.

We will be updating this article if we hear new rumours or if something changes to the dates and cities that we have already listed. So keep checking back.

Bring Pearl Jam to Iceland

A little while back, an Icelandic fan started an online petition to get Pearl Jam to play a show in Iceland. As there are not many places that we would prefer more to see Pearl Jam than Iceland, we had to support the cause – but we were also curious to know more about the background for the petition. Who was behind it and how was the idea born?

We got in contact with Throstur Bragason, the man behind the petition, and did a small Q&A with him.

We are giving away one Ten Club ticket to see Eddie Vedder in Berlin on June 28, 2019. The contest takes place on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/pearljamnordicofficial

Check out or Facebook page for a chance to win a ticket to see Eddie in Berlin!

But nothing comes for free! You have to help us come up with a name for our new mascot, the punk skeleton. The artwork was done by Chicho from Tigre Tattoo Parlour in Copenhagen, and we’re already feeling like the little skinny punk is already a part of our Jamily. So of course it needs a name. It is up to you to decide if it’s a boy or a girl or something completely different.

Help us find a name for this little dude/dudette.

Hope to see you in Berlin! 🙂

New PJ Nordic Facebook page

Dear friends & jamily,

Three years ago we started the fan community Pearl Jam Nordic. We have put a lot of hard work, blood, sweat, tears and money into getting this fan community to where it is today.

In less than three years we have gained 10,000 followers on Facebook, arranged events and meet-ups, travelled the world, met a lot of beautiful people and had a lot of fun.

However, sadly we have lost access to our Facebook page. To say that we are devastated is an understatement.

But we’re not going to let this bring us down!

And that is why we have decided to start over again from scratch! As of today we are relaunching PEARL JAM NORDIC on www.facebook.com/pearljamnordicofficial

We have a brand new smoking hot logo designed by the incredibly talented tattoo artist Chicho from Tigre Tattoo Parlour in Copenhagen. It is ready to go onto t-shirts, totebags and stickers. We will have some giveaways with some AMAZING PRIZES to celebrate the new and fresh PEARL JAM NORDIC!

New smashing Pearl Jam Nordic artwork by Chicho from Tigre Tattoo Parlour in Copenhagen. Will be available on t-shirts, totebags and stickers very soon. Click to view full size.

So please join us (again) and take part in the fun. Please help spread the word. This community means the world to us, and we would be so happy to stay in touch with all of the great people that we have met and brought together through this community.

We can’t wait to see you on tour around Europe this summer!

Peace & love to you all,

Cecilie & Pernille

Nordic fan portrait: Sofie – The new generation

When you look at the audience at a Pearl Jam show, you’ll find that most fans are somewhere between the age of 40 to 50 years old with a small majority of men. There is nothing surprising in this fact (or rather than fact, it’s my personal experience) considering the genre of music that Pearl Jam plays and the time they had their big break through in the nineties. Most of us were teens during those years, the band was pretty hard to avoid back then, and research shows that people form their musical identity in their early teens or a little earlier. So when I see a new young(er) face in the fan community, it always catches my eye and sparks my curioisity. How do people discover Pearl Jam these days when there’s no music on MTV and the media in general is dominated by crappy meaningless pop?

29-year-old Sofie Thybo Pedersen showed up at a Pearl Jam Nordic gathering at a bar in central Copenhagen in January. She showed up alone and knew nobody there but felt like a part of the Jamily right away, and that’s what’s so cool about the Jamily: You’re never a stranger. You’re a part of the tribe. The day after the meeting I contacted Sofie to ask if she wanted to do an interview for the blog, so I could ask her more about her story of becoming a Pearl Jam fan and share it with the world.
