The Gigaton Visual Experience will available in Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision and screened in 4K.

Gigaton producer Josh Evans says: “I’m excited for fans to be able to immerse themselves in the sound and to hear the depth and layers of these songs and and performances. It’s truly a unique way to experience this album.”

Pearl Jam are no strangers to engaging with fans through the use of technology. Before Gigaton was officially announced, interactive posters began to appear around the world, which came to life when viewed through smartphones.

And fans got the chance to hear Superblood Wolfmoon in advance by pointing their phones directly at the moon (opens in new tab).
