New Soundgarden Album in the Works?

    After a 12-year breakup, grunge-metal rockers Soundgarden reunited to headline last summer’s Lollapalooza festival. According to guitarist Kim Thayil, the band might not stop there.

     

    In an interview with Canadian radio station CFNY-FM, Thayil dropped heavy hints about an album of new material on top of a collection of b-sides and a live album already expected next spring.

     

    Thayil told CFNY-FM, “When we get together to rehearse it’s natural for us… to start jamming and inventing,”  He continued, “I’m not confirming anything, but it’s impossible for us to get in a room and not come up with ideas.”

     

    Those convinced that singer Chris Cornell might have lost all goodwill with his stints in Audioslave and as a Michael Jackson cover artist might consult this A.V. Club article for a history lesson.
