Soundgarden Comeback Album Set for November 13 Release


Soundgarden officially has a release date for a new album. According to the upcoming August 30 issue of Rolling Stone, the band will release its first collection of new songs since Down on the Upside on November 13.

Longtime fans have been waiting for this news for the better part of four Olympiads, and now they are but months away from seeing what the band has up its sleeve. Blabbermouth reports guitarist Kim Thayil defiantly saying “we’re still heavy, and we’re still a little weird” in the RS interview.

Back in June, Chris Cornell discussed the new album with NME and had this to say: “We have an album coming out in the fall. It’s kind of hard to describe, it’s sort of picking up where we left off. There’s a lot of different feels on the album. We’re a band where every single member contributes music so that makes it very diverse. It’s a very rich album with a lot of different moods to it.”

If you caught The Avengers in theaters (box office receipts indicate you most likely did), you presumably have head Soundgarden’s “Live to Rise,” the band’s first new song since reuniting, on the film’s soundtrack. When asked of the parallel between “Live to Rise” and the upcoming album, Cornell told NME, “It’s great to put out a new song after so long. If you look at the history of our band, you can’t just listen to one song or take one song out of context and say ‘This is what we sound like’.”

As anticipation builds for the November 13 release date, The Silver Tongue will keep you updated with all emerging news of the yet-to-be-titled comeback album.
