Despite the fact the individual members have been doing their own thing lately, the band has managed to plan a South American tour, which kicks off in November.

Speaking to Vice, bassist Jeff Ament said an album will come thereafter, "The band will probably try and get another record going in the next year," before continuing on to discuss his skate park empire.

"I just want to build more parks in Montana. We’re starting a park in Stevensville in two weeks. We just finished a bowl in Havre and there are five or six more cities I’m talking to. The way I look at it is if I’m touring and doing more things with the band I make more money. If I make more money I build more parks. It helps me get more excited about touring because I’m usually not too excited about it.”

The album will be their 11th studio album and will follow up 2013's Lightning Bolt.

Getting together to get it down, however, may prove difficult given their outside interests range from Ament's skate park endeavors to Vedder's Temple of the Dog gigs and various other appearances, and Mike McCready's dabblings with the Iggy & the Stooges tribute concert.
