Pearl Jam will release a new album, Lightning Bolt, on October 15, and the attendant promotional blitz began a few weeks ago with the release of the rollicking "Mind Your Manners." But what does the sorta anti-video band do for visuals in a post-video age? Apparently they ask noted photographer Danny Clinch to film slightly awkward interviews with famous PJ fans and then intersperse those with new music and off-the-cuff conversations. The resulting short film features brief interactions with director Judd Apatow, rocker/actor Carrie Brownstein, former New Orleans Saint Steve Gleason, and, naturally, a surfing champ guy. It's not terribly revealing (when is Pearl Jam ever terribly revealing?), but it does feature live snippets of a bunch of Lightning Bolt songs. If you've got nine minutes or any portion thereof, the video is below.
