Pearl Jam will offer fans an early listen of their new album, Gigaton, with special audio-visual experiences scheduled at over 200 Dolby Atmos-equipped theaters around the world. The one-night only event will take place March 25th, two days before the LP’s March 27th release date.
The “Gigaton Listening Experience” will include a full playback of the new album in Dolby Atmos, a high-quality surround sound technology. The music will be paired with visuals curated and created by Evolve, the filmmaker and artist who helmed the music video for Gigaton’s first single, “Dance of the Clairvoyants.”
“It’s truly a unique way to experience this album,” Gigaton producer Josh Evans said. “I’m excited for fans to be able to immerse themselves in the sound and to hear the depth and layers of these songs and performances.” A complete list of participating theaters is available on the Pearl Jam website, and tickets to screenings are also available.
Gigaton marks Pearl Jam’s 11th album and first of all-new material since 2013’s Lightning Bolt. So far the band has released just two songs from the LP, “Dance of the Clairvoyants” and “Superblood Wolfmoon.” Pearl Jam will embark on a 16-date North American tour in support of Gigaton March 18th in Toronto. Tickets for the tour are available via Ticketmaster.
