Pearl Jam Unleash Explosive ‘Mind Your Manners’ Video

First clip from ‘Lightning Bolt’ takes album’s title quite literally

Pearl Jam take the title of their October 15th album Lightning Bolt quite literally in their new video for "Mind Your Manners," the LP's first single. The chaotic clip, directed by Danny Clinch, features the band performing before a screen projecting all kind of disasters — lightning bolts, bombs, environmental crises. Some of the animated imagery recalls their 1998 "Do the Evolution" video, though "Mind Your Manners" alludes to tragedies like September 11th, global warming and Hurricane Sandy while Eddie Vedder expresses his frustrations, singing, "Tried my patience/Patience tried."
