Escape to Mars with Pearl Jam with their new online video game

You gotta feel bad for Pearl Jam and their fans. After waiting seven years for a new studio album, the band and their base should be enjoying the new Gigaton album and tour in the traditional ways. But with COVID-19 screwing with everyone, we’re all having to come up with alternate plans.

Gigtaon will come out as scheduled tomorrow (March 27) but any public listening sessions and live performances will have to wait until this virus is vanquished.

To help bide the time in self-isolation, Pear Jam has released a new online video entitled Quick Escape, which is the same name as one of the songs on Gigaton. Just pick a pilot and head out for Mars. Go here to play.
