Recording on their new album will start "in the next six months"...

PEARL JAM are planning to return to the recording studio "in the next six months" to start work on their new album.

Speaking in an interview with Billboard magazine in the US, guitarist Stone Gossard said that the band have been working on new material, and once recording proper takes place, the finished product will come together fairly quickly.

Asked when the band will return to the studio to work on the follow-up to 'Binaural', he replied: "I don't know exactly when, but in the next six months. And I don't think it's going to be that long before we have a record done.

"We're definitely letting ourselves relax at this point, in terms of everybody feeling like we've come a long way. We need to allow ourselves enough time to really be fresh when we get back together. That's basically what everyone's doing. But my guess is we'd be doing some recording at some point relatively soon."

The band expect to perform some new material at the forthcoming Bridge School Benefit concert which takes place in the US in October. An exact date is yet to be confirmed, although REM and Neil Young are also confirmed to appear.
