Eddie Vedder, the lead singer of Pearl Jam, acknowledges that he draws parallels between the followers of Taylor Swift and the punk rock scenes of his early years.

The rock star was persuaded to go to a Swift concert by one of Vedder’s daughters. The Pearl Jam singer was instantly struck by the sense of community that pervaded the event.

In an interview with Mojo, Eddie Vedder recalled the events leading up to it. He talked about the friendship bracelets he made with her. Vedder also mentioned the kindness of these young girls and boys in exchanging these bracelets. The bracelets bore various messages such as song titles, lyrics, or just small acts of kindness. “They had discovered their tribe; they shared a common understanding.”

Vedder observed that despite the Swifties’ completely different musical taste, there were clear parallels between them and another subset of musical fandom.

The singer observed, “The most absurd thing was that it brought back memories of punk rock gatherings and standing with all of the outcasts in our community from the past.” It was inspiring and potent.

When Will the New Album from Pearl Jam Be Released?

Dark Matter, Pearl Jam’s twelfth studio album, will be available on April 19. A large portion of the album was recorded at Shangri-La, a Malibu, California studio that the Band had initially constructed.

During the sessions, Vedder felt as though he was “tapping into a sacred space“. So, the place held particular significance for him.

Vedder told Mojo, “I can’t tell you how much it meant to be in that spot,” mentioning how much he loved the Band. “It also felt like energy mining in a secure environment.”
