Pearl Jam has officially announced that they have a new album coming. 

After endless hits and cryptic messages, the band confirmed that their new album, Gigaton, will drop March 27. They also confirmed that they’ll be going on a 16-date tour of North America in March and June.

“Making this record was a long journey,” guitarist Mike McCready wrote on the band’s official website. “It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption. Collaborating with my bandmates on Gigaton ultimately gave me greater love, awareness, and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times.”

Gigaton is Pearl Jam’s first record since 2013’s Lightning Bolt.
