Pearl Jam Will "Probably Try" for New Album Next Year
In an interview with Vice, Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament says the band may return to the studio in 2016.
"The band will probably try and get another record going in the next year," Ament says. Pearl Jam's last album was 2013's Lightning Bolt.
Ament didn't give any more details about the prospective new Pearl Jam album the interview mostly focused on his efforts building skate parks for youth communities in South Dakota and his home state Montana, which he pays for himself.
"The way I look at it is if I'm touring and doing more things with the band, I make more money," Ament says. "If I make more money I build more parks. It helps me get more excited about touring because I'm usually not too excited about it."
Pearl Jam will headline the 2015 Global Citizen Festival on September 26 in New York City's Central Park, followed by a South American tour in November.
