Yesterday, Pearl Jam revealed that they will be releasing a brand new album titled, Lightning Bolt. This album will be the first that the band as released since 2009’s Backspacer.

The band announced the news through their website which not only revealed the name of the album, but also the first single from it, “Mind Your Manners.” Fans of the band could actually start pre-ordering the album, which isn’t due to hit shelves until October 15 through their website as well (if you want, you can check that out here).

This announcement should not come as much of a surprise to die-hard fans, because back in May, guitarist Mike McCready teased that a new album was currently in the works. While being interviewed during the “Bob & Groz Radio Show,” the guitarist said the following, “I’ve been told by the powers that be I can’t say anything yet because we are just mixing it right now.” He followed it up with, “[The powers that be] are basically the five of us and our manager, we sit down and talk about — honestly, we don’t have a date for it yet.”

This new bit of information just added tot he news they had released a few days before which included word that they would be heading out on a North American tour staring in mid-October.

For now, you ca listen to “Mind Your Manners” and tel us what you think about Pearl Jam’s return from their longest drought to date.
