Since reforming in 2010, Soundgarden have released another greatest hits album, played a few live shows and gave a previously unreleased song from the Badmotorfinger sessions. It’s only now that they’re going to make a new record.In a post on their website, Soundgarden have said that;
Over the past few months, we’ve been busy jamming, writing and hanging out together – exploring the creative aspect of being Soundgarden. It feels great. We have some cool new songs that we are going to record very soon. Thank you for all of the support!
As much as I like Soundgarden’s albums, I don’t know whether a new record would be able to live up to the name. Chris Cornell hasn’t exactly made anything interesting since Soundgarden originally split up and as good as that new song Black Rain was, it was an unreleased song do it has no indication if the band is still up to scratch. I’ll still give it a go when it’s released but I don’t have high expectations.
