Soundgarden Will Return to the UK this September

Soundgarden Will Return to the UK this September -

Soundgarden will be returning to the UK this September for a string of dates in Manchester, Birmingham, Dublin and London.        

The Seattle veterans returned to action last year with the release of new album King Animal which has received mixed reactions from critics and fans alike, albeit mostly positive.

However, bassist Ben Shepherd has stated he had no doubt they'd be able to deliver the goods once again, despite having split in 1997.

He tells the St Louis Post-Dispatch:

"Even when we were in the room together meeting about having meetings, it was already back to the same chemistry. There were no worries about us taking the next step and being able to write new songs."

Of the album he says:

"We wanted it to sound like us. The only pressure we put on ourselves was that we make a record that's on par with our old stuff. I had the utmost faith in the others that we would bring it all the way. There was no way we were going to put out a crappy record that no one cared about."

Soundgarden UK and Ireland tour:

Sep 13: Manchester O2 Apollo
Sep 14: Birmingham Academy
Sep 16: Dublin O2
Sep 18: London O2 Academy Brixton
