Soundgarden is on the precipice of a mighty return: they've released their first LP in 15 years, King Animal , played Letterman and Jools Holland , and will embark on sizable 2013 world tour . But all of those triumphs pale in comparison to their latest: they've joined the likes of M83 and Gorillaz as recipients of their own Converse shoe. They're back, babies! As Blabbermouth points out, the limited-edition Soundgarden Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker features the King Animal [...]
Soundgarden have just released their new album, King Animal, on 12 November, and it kicks so much arse it shouldn't even be legal! To help launch the project, the band appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman Monday night. Surprise surprise, they rocked it there too. Soundgarden performed the single from their first album in 16 years, "Been Away Too Long" on the nightly show. I can only agree man - they've been away for too long. The post Soundgarden [...]

Hardly a season goes by without some sort of release from Robert Pollard or his reunited band Guided by Voices , and among the highlights of this week's list of new releases is the third GBV album of 2012. So what makes this so special? Our Music Director, Don Yates, thinks it might be "the strongest of the bunch," featuring among "half-finished sketches" other songs that "sound like fully-formed GBV gems that range from anthemic prog-rock and crunchy power pop to melodic psych-pop and sparse acoustic folk." And speaking of seasons, it's almost "tis' the season," and Chicago songwriter/composer [...]
I have to say, when I first heard "Been Away Too Long" a few weeks ago, I wasn't too crazy about it. But after repeat listens, gosh darn it, it's pretty catchy. I've even had it caught in my head while running random errands. So, you win Soundgarden. I like your new song. The band ...

photos by PSquared Photography Chris Cornell at Bowery Ballroom - 11/12/12 With the pics we just posted of Pearl Jam side project RNDM , and all of the Soundgarden stuff going on in NYC this week, it's starting to feel a lot like early '90s Seattle around here. Soundgarden began their unofficial NYC week with a Live on Letterman concert at the Ed Sullivan Theater, which was webcasted live and can be watched in full below. [...]
There’s a certain grace to bands who know when to call it a day at the right time, instead of shamelessly plugging the hits and knock off sounds for the pull of filthy lucre. Weak final album aside, Soundgarden still fall into the former category, which is arguably why they’re one of the most respected bands catapulted out of the Seattle scene. A hard-to-believe sixteen years after their supposed swansong, however, they are back, doing something Chris Cornell vowed they’d never do – releasing a new album. If fashion is anything to go by grunge, that woeful label [...]
The SOUNDGARDEN have BEEN AWAY TOO LONG so they took to the Letterman show last PM to rock'n'show you wot they got.
While full album shows have become something of the norm in recent years, we haven't seen too many bands outside of My Morning Jacket attempt to do what Deer Tick will do with their upcoming three-night residency at Brooklyn Bowl next month - tackle their entire body of recorded work. Over the course of three Wednesday nights, the raucous bar-rock band will tackle almost all of their studio output - LPs and EPs - in their entirety sans their much-beloved debut War Elephant. The run will kick-off on December 5, with the pairing of Born [...]

Last week we got to enjoy Soundgarden hit the promo circuit with a few performances on Later... with Jools Holland and last night they continued the goodness with a performance on American TV. They visited the the Late Show with David Letterman to lay down a rendition of "Been Away Too Long" which features on their new album King Animal .

Soundgarden King Animal Universal Music Group  Fire Note Says: Soundgarden return after 16 years with a fan satisfying album. Album Review: We have already seen plenty of classic groups come back together in 2012 and now Soundgarden add to the list after a 16 year absence since a studio record. As one of the kings of grunge I don't think anyone knew what to expect from King Animal . [...]
