Soundgarden .Converse .11-12In related news Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil has told Consequence of Sound that he believes drummer Matt Cameron may have planned the band's reunion. 

Thayil said:

"Matt demoed a couple of songs that he wanted us to learn. He sent us an email saying he booked studio time that November and that he'd love to show us these songs and have us learn and record them. I guess he just wanted to hear what they'd sound like with us playing them. I'm inferring from that that they didn't work out for Pearl Jam or something."

When asked if Cameron may have had the intention of reuniting Soundgarden all along, the guitarist said:

"He might have. I shouldn't speculate, but I think he wanted to get us back together - because that's where we are. We went into the studio, rehearsed and jammed on those songs, and from there other ideas started coming forward." 

Soundgarden's new album 'King Animal', is on sale now.
