Stone Gossard and his dog Bassey were at Crestwoods Park in Kirkland, Washington last Saturday to help with a reforestation effort.
Gossard spoke with local paper the Woodinville Patch about upcoming Pearl Jam plans. The guitarist says the next Pearl Jam album is still in the formative stage, adding the band is "not sure what it's going to be yet".
Not much to stop the presses, but since the album is only in its formative stage, and the band will be busy touring Europe this spring, it seems like a 2012 release date is unlikely at best. No word on Bassey's contributions.
