Opening with some archive footage informing viewers of the importance of good manners, the latest video from Pearl Jam does its best to raise the bar for rock performance videos. The clip is centered around footage of the group, but blended with a wide array of editing tricks, archive footage, framing techniques, and colorful overlays that makes it feel like much more is taking place. It’s not exactly reinventing the wheel of the performance based music video, but it certainly goes a long way towards making the concept feel fresh. You can view the video below.

After teasing “big news” for over a week, Pearl Jam broke their silence around 1pm EST this afternoon to announce plans to embark on a North American tour this fall.
Split into two legs, each consisting of 12 shows spread throughout the country, Pearl Jam’s latest outing will find them hitting the road in October and November.

1991 was a lot longer ago than many of us would like to admit. It’s even possible some of you reading this now weren’t alive then, but in the time that has passed since you’ve entered this world and possibly even graduated high school.
Anyways, in 1991 Pearl Jam released their now legendary album, Ten. The record was a massive success that rode the coattails of the grunge movement throughout the early 90s, spawning many top ten singles that are still in rotation today. Now, after nearly twenty-two years of shelf life and sales of just over 4000 copies in the last week, Ten has finally sold 10 million in the US and become the twenty-second album to ever reach Diamond Certification.
