Soundgarden New Album To Be Released In November

According to  Rolling Stone, rock legends  Soundgarden have set a November 13 release  date for their new album. Despite not yet announcing a title for the album, guitarist Kim Thayil tells the magazine "It re-establishes that we still rock, we're still heavy, and we're still a little weird." The CD will feature tracks like  "Blood On The Valley Floor" and  "A Thousand Days Before", the latter of which "has a little Indian thing and some chicken-pickin',"  Thayil says. "We call it 'country and eastern.'"

After reuniting in 2010,  the band set about writing and recording their first album of new material since 1996's 'Down On The Upside'.

The group's  new  song  "Live To Rise" recently topped the  Active Rock radio chart. The track was taken from  "Avengers Assemble", the companion soundtrack to the blockbuster movie  "The Avengers".

 

 

Soundgarden singer  Chris Cornell recently revealed in an interview with the  New York Times that there are still 15  songs from the band's earliest days that have yet to be recorded and released.  Cornell explained, "It was the first 15 we wrote. It was on a cassette that  Kim [Thayil, guitarist] always referred to as 'The First 15. We were a band for a couple of years before we really did much (recording) . . . when we would go in to record, we tended to record the newest things we had written, because it was what we were most excited about."

Cornell continued that as a result, some of that earlier material got left behind. He said, "We just got together in our room and started writing songs and did it very quickly. And then we would sit around and discuss what that sounds like, and then over time, I think we would maybe be critical about some of the things we were writing and playing and excited about some of the new stuff we were bringing into the band."
