Seattle rockers Pearl Jam are shedding some light on Dark Matter.

The '90s icons are releasing their 12th full-length next Friday, April 19, but Canadian fans can get an advance listen at four independent record stores around the country this Sunday. On April 14, the band is hosting listening parties in Vancouver, Toronto, Halifax and Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu. (Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu is about a half hour drive for Montreal fans).


Dark Matter is the band's first full-length since 2020's Gigaton, which hit No. 5 on the Billboard 200. The album, written and recorded in just three weeks, is a testament to the strength of the band members' lifelong personal and creative bonds. High energy lead single "Dark Matter" topped Billboard's Mainstream Rock Airplay chart last month, the first time the band has hit that height since 1998.
