I caught myself believing

As sure as night follows cliché, Pearl Jam have released a video for punky new single ‘Mind Your Manners’, from the forthcoming album Lightning Bolt.

The animation for this distinctive video has been created by Andy Smetanka, alongside Jeff Ament a fellow native of Missoula. (A town in Montana. Just past Spokane along the I90. North of Idaho. Ok, this place. Can we get on with the article now?) Here’s an interview with him from the must-read Missoula Independent. Smetanka has previously put together videos for Portland, Oregon’s excellent Decemberists – a band well worth a listen if you’re not already familiar with them.

Still from 'Mind Your Manners'. Someone better unhook Vedder from that barbed wire soon.

If you’re busting to know more about the song, here’s an interview with Mike McCready about how he came up with the guitar part, and a clip of Matt Cameron playing his drum part on the song.

Hoping to persuade the others in Radio Seattle to add it to our setlist some time soon!
