It’s confirmed: Pearl Jam are working on a new album. Though the legendary band haven’t been hitting the studio just yet, the band have been slowly working on studio album No. 11.

“We’re going to make a record, and we’re in the middle of it,” guitarist Stone Gossard said to Rolling Stone. “We’re just going to keep plugging away until we get one done.” Added bassist Jeff Ament “We’ve gone in, probably, four or five times in the last couple of years, so we have a whole ton of unfinished stuff. We’re just sort of in a little bit of  limbo. I’m sure everybody’s got a bunch more riffs, and I’m sure Ed’s got a handful of journal lyrics. It’s just going to take us all getting into a room together for six weeks and just knocking something out.”

Pearl Jam’s last record was 2013’s Lightning Bolt. The album hit No. 1 in the U.S. – however it was the first Pearl Jam full-length not to attain Gold or Platinum status.
