Soundgarden, one of the key players in the Seattle grunge scene of the late eighties/ nineties and indeed alternative music in general, have announced that their new and as yet untitled record is to be released this coming November. It will be the first full-length the band has put out since 1996’s ‘Down on the Upside’ and the subsequent break up of the band in 1997. Speaking to Rolling Stone, guitarist Kim Thayil stated:


“It re-establishes that we still rock, we’re still heavy, and we’re still a little weird.”


Thayil also confirmed some of the song titles that will appear on the bands new offering, namely, ‘Blood On The Valley Floor’ and ‘A Thousand Days Before’, the latter, as the soundgarden six-stringer describes it, “has a little Indian thing and some chicken-pickin’, we call it ‘country and eastern.”


The album is currently scheduled for a November 13th release (US)
