Seattle rock group Pearl Jam has announced the launch of DEEP, a musical archive encompassing 186 live concerts of the group.
This is not the first time that the band has opted to release live music directly to their fans without label intervention. To date, Pearl Jam’s series of official bootleg albums has sold in excess of 13 million copies.
The archive recordings that Eddie Vedder fronted group are releasing now is set to hold fans until the band is to return on tour. Their current tour was postponed for 2021, but they are expected to be back on the road in 2022.
The DEEP archive will contain songs over 5000 individual song recordings. The concerts belong to tours the group organized in 2000, 2003, 2008, and 2013.
The platform will also allow fans to create their own custom setlists, besides being able to choose from pre-existing playlists focusing on hits, political songs, or covers.
DEEP will be, for the time being, available to members of the Pearl Jam Ten Club, the official fan club of the group.
Pearl Jam released their latest studio album, Gigaton, in 2020.
