Pearl Jam to hit the road after announcing "Gigaton," their first album in years

Grunge bands, like Pearl Jam, struggled with balancing fame and their anti-establishment mindset in the '90s.

Fans of Pearl Jam can finally just breathe -- the famed rock band announced on Monday that they are releasing a new album titled "Gigaton" and a North American tour to go along with it.

"Gigaton," expected to be released March 27, is the first album from Pearl Jam since the 2013 release of their Grammy Award-winning album "Lightning Bolt."

It's their 11th studio album and is available for preorder now.

"Making this record was a long journey," lead guitarist Mike McCready said in a statement. "It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption. Collaborating with my bandmates on Gigaton ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times."

The first single, "Dance of the Clairvoyants," will be released in the coming weeks, a statement on the band's website said.

Battling ticket resellers

A 16-date North American tour featuring Eddie Vedder and company is set to kick off March 18 in Toronto.

To ensure the band's concert tickets are being sold at face value, they've partnered up with Ticketmaster -- the ticket sales company the band once battled after accusing it of refusing to lower its service fees.

As a result, all tickets for the Pearl Jam concerts will be powered by Ticketmaster SafeTix, a type of ticket that uses a unique barcode that refreshes every couple of seconds so it can't be screenshotted or counterfeited, according to the band's website.
