Pearl Jam – Mind Your Manners

As most Pearl Jam fans know, they don’t release music videos very often. However, in order to promote their upcoming tenth studio album Lightning Bolt, the band enlisted Danny Clinch to direct the music video for Mind Your Manners, the first single from their latest album.

Clinch’s video is similar in concept to the animated music video for Pearl Jam’s Do The Evolution [MV], which showcased past atrocities that happened in Earth. While Mind Your Manners is only animated partially thanks to Andy Smetanka (who was in charge of the silhouette animation), the video will remind you of Hurricane Sandy, 9/11, nuclear bombs and other issues while the band plays their song.

Lightning Bolt is out in stores on October 15, 2013.
