Pearl Jam announced some upcoming changes to their website via an e-mail to Ten Club members today. We were promised these changes nearly a year ago, so fans will be super excited to dig in. Although a lot of the artwork looks unchanged, the functionality is clearly new. The site will go down on Sunday, June 3rd and return, revamped sometime in the next week.
Here's what to expect:
It’s been a long road, but we’ve finally arrived thanks to the creative input from the band, a stellar team of site developers new and old, the band’s archivist and recording engineers, and Ten Club member feedback.
Your favorite Pearl Jam website features will remain, including:
- Streaming Pearl Jam radio
- Members only merchandise
A bunch of new advanced features have been added, including:
- Enhanced discography
- Enhanced show archive, including memorabilia from the show
- Expanded live photo slide shows, including some never seen before
- Guest check-out in the store section of the site
- Simpler store design and navigation
- Select bootleg revival
- Informative and interactive activism pages
New members-only features have also been added, including:
- Easier to navigate site and member management settings
- Automatic membership renewals
- Member-to-member live chat
In order to prep the new site, pearljam.com will be taken offline from Sunday, June 3rd until the site launch scheduled within a week. Our team is working hard to make the transition as smooth as possible. However, with any new site launch there can be some unexpected growing pains. Your patience is appreciated in advance.
To expedite getting answers to your questions about the new site, we’ve set up a page called Answers to Frequently Asked Questions, which we will update continually. You can find that page at the following link: www.pearljam.com/faq
If you don’t see an answer to your question there, please email email@example.com
As always, we want your feedback. Once the new site goes live in early June let us know what you think and what we can improve by filling out this feedback formhttps://pjguest.wufoo.com/
