Pearl Jam Will Be The 2019 Record Store Day Ambassadors

Pearl Jam have been announced at the ambassadors for the 2019 Record Store Day.

The 2019 event will take place on April 13, with exclusive releases to be announced soon.

On the news, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready said: “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,”

“Support every independent record store that you can. They’re really a good part of society. Know if you love music, this is the place to find it. And it helps people who work here and that’s important, too.

“Come out on Record Store Day, but also make it Record Store Year.”
