Pearl Jam Release 'Mind Your Manners' Video

(Radio.com) When Pearl Jam announced their new album Lightning Bolt via countdown clocks a month ago, it came along with the first single off the record "Mind Your Manners." Now, the single has got visuals courtesy of director Danny Clinch � who worked with Eddie Vedder on the videos for his ukulele solo album Ukulele Songs � and Missoula, Montana artist and animator Andy Smetanka.

Here, Clinch and Smetanka put the band rocking directly out in front of stock video images and silhouettes that are a more than a little reminiscent of their 1998 animated video for "Do The Evolution". The new video is only the band's 11th official music video in their entire 22 year career.

For a bit of the behind the scenes look, watch PJ guitarist Mike McCready talk about his part in making the song, and how he tried to create a really "hard-edged, Dead Kennedys-type riff" in a mini interview posted to the band's YouTube page.

Pearl Jam's 10th studio album Lightning Bolt arrives October 15, and the band will head out on the road for a North American tour just before starting October 11 in Pittsburgh. Check out the video here.
