Director/Photographer Danny Clinch isn't the only one with a role in this short film. Interviewers include Judd Apatow, Portlandia star and fellow musician Carrie Brownstein, pro surfer Mark Richards, and Steve Gleason, an NFL player living with ALS.

Methinks Pearl Jam has tired of being called "notoriously video shy." "Sirens" is the second video to precede new album Lightning Bolt and it's bascially a beautifully shot performance — that I would make an educated guess also has live audio — of the band in their stage set-up.

Welcome to Purgatory Pizza, where the pies are cut like pentagrams and you best watch your fingers unless you'd like to keep them from becoming part of the Supreme special.
