Soundgarden recording new album
Soundgarden are recording a new album.
The 'Fell On Black Days' group are planning to head into the studio to record a full album for the first time since 1996's 'Down On The Upside', their first newly recorded material since reforming in 2010.
A post on the grunge group's website said: "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!"
In summer last year lead singer Chris Cornell - who was in the band Audioslave and recorded three solo albums in his time away from the band - had been initially dismissive about recording new material.
He said: "It would be exciting to record one song, to hear how Soundgarden-ish that might be, this much time later. But for me, it's been more of a trip relearning the songs and playing them together."
The band will release a live album, titled 'Live At l5', on March 21.Posted on 17 Feb 2011 16:15 to category : Music News
