Grunge rock band Soundgarden have unveiled the release date for their upcoming studio album
While the guys of Pearl Jam are putting off work on their upcoming album, their grunge rock contemporaries Soundgarden are ready to move forward. Frontman Chris Cornell, guitarist Kim Thayil and the gang have announced that their much-anticipated new studio album will arrive in November. Mark it down, kids.
This news came via Thayil’s recent interview with Rolling Stone, in which the guitarist explained that the new album, which has yet to be titled, will be “little weird.” He also stated that the band have settled on Nov. 13 as the U.S. release date for the album.
When asked what to expect from Soundgarden’s new collection, Thayil says the album “re-establishes that we still rock, we’re still heavy, and we’re still a little weird.” He also named a few of the tracks on the upcoming album, including “Blood on the Valley Floor” and “A Thousand Days Before,” which will appear on the record. Thayil went on to describe “A Thousand Days Before,” which he says is “a little Indian thing and some chicken-pickin.’ We call it ‘country and eastern.’”
Soundgarden recently unleashed their first new song since reuniting, a melodic jam called “Live to Rise,” which was featured on the soundtrack to the feature film “The Avengers.” The guys kept “Live to Rise” pretty “family-friendly” and mainstream, but they’ve stated that the upcoming album will see more adventure.
