Pearl Jam's electrifying new LP 'Lightning Bolt' has gone straight in at number 2 in the UK charts, equaling their best ever UK chart performance.
It is an astonishing achievement for the Seattle heavyweights who look likely to celebrate their 5th US number one album tomorrow. The LP has already been heralded as "one of the best albums of 2013, if not the best" by Kerrang!, seen as a "sturdy return to great form" by the Guardian, and given a fantastic 4 star review by Q magazine.
'Lightning Bolt' has also debuted at number 1 in an amazing 56 countries on iTunes. Stay tuned for UK tour details, which will be announced shortly.
