Pearl Jam's pretty great new album, Lightning Bolt, is due for release on October 15, and while bands used to try and keep these things tightly under wraps until the inevitable midnight sales at indie record stores (sheds single tear), the band has decided to stream the whole thing via iTunes. Times have changed, but go ahead and exchange that sense of personal interaction for some alone time with your headphones. Click here and see if it takes you to the right spot. The band will also be launching a tour this Friday, playing big-ass places all over the country; dates are here.
