The new Pearl Jam album is "almost done" according to guitarist Stone Gossard.  Speaking to, Gossard said that the album is close to being done, but did not share much about what the sound will be like, specifically.  Gossard said:

“It’s almost done and as far as what it sounds like, it sounds like Pearl Jam. You’re going to hear some rock songs and you’re going to hear some quiet songs and you’ll hear some songs in between. That’s all I can really say about it because we aren’t talking about it yet so it doesn’t make much sense for me to say anything.”

In February, when asked about the album, Gossard said it was "9-12" months away.  That would put a release date in late 2013 or early 2013.

The band has a handful of concerts scheduled.  But, many of the members have time committments with other projects.  Drummer Matt Cameron will be in Charlotte on Sunday with Soundgarden for Carolina Rebellion.
