“Pearl Jam is honoured to be Record Store Day’s Ambassador for 2019,” guitarist Mike McCready explained, according to DIY. “Independent record stores are hugely important to me, and have been ever since I was 12 years-old. Before I even really knew what they were – there was a certain feeling of ‘this is a dream come true,’ and it’s a wonderland and there’s so much to learn in here…and it’s still that way.”
Record Store takes place on April 13th, 2019, and it’s sure to have a stacked lineup of special limited releases.
