Pearl Jam release new video!

Posted by Rebecca Tremblay

Pearl Jam have released the video for “Mind Your Manners”, the lead single from their forthcoming album, “Lightning Bolt.”

The clip as directed by noted photographer and film director Danny Clinch.

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready recently explained the inspiration behind the new track.

“It’s my attempt to try to make a really hard edge-type Dead Kennedys-sounding song,” said McCready. “I wanted that kind of aggression and that kind of feel in that song, so I came up with the lyrics ‘Mind Your Manners’. Jeff [Ament] brought in a lot of his real punk rock kind of bass ideas of starting and stopping…the kind of school he comes from is that; I came from more of the metal thing but always wanted to dive into the punk side.”

Due October 15, “Lightning Bolt” was produced by Brendan O’Brien; the project marks the Seattle band’s first studio album since 2009’s “Backspacer.”

Pearl Jam will kick off a fall North American tour October 11 in Pittsburgh.
