Pearl Jam Back With Eighth Album

American rockers PEARL JAM are reuniting to create an eighth studio album.

The Seattle band will begin work on the LP after they reassemble in October (04) for their forthcoming live shows.

Band manager KELLY CURTIS says, "They're definitely planning on going back to the studio this winter."

Having left longtime label EPIC last year, PEARL JAM crowned their free agent status in July (04) with the release of LIVE AT BENAROYA HALL on the internet - which is already a huge success.

Curtis says, "Luckily, we don't have to decide (about potentially signing with a new label) right now.

"We want to do as much as we can ourselves, and for what we can't do or don't want to do, we'll rely on someone else."

The group will play six shows as part of the VOTE FOR CHANGE tour - which kicks off in Pennsylvania on 1 October (04) - along with artists BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, DAVE MATTHEWS, REM and the DIXIE CHICKS.
