Soundgarden Set November Release Date for New Album
Finally! After months of hearing that the guys of Soundgarden were gunning for a fall release date for their upcoming album, the grunge gents have finally nailed down a specific day.
According to guitarist Kim Thayil, Soundgarden’s yet-to-be-titled new studio release will arrive Nov. 13 in the U.S. Yes, friends, we now have the ring and a date.
Thayil dished the news to Rolling Stone, adding that the upcoming album will be “a little weird.” He went on to explain that the new album “re-establishes that we still rock, we’re still heavy, and we’re still a little weird.”
He also announced a few of the album’s song titles, including “Blood on the Valley Floor” and “A Thousand Days Before,” the latter which Thayil says is “a little Indian thing and some chicken-pickin.’ We call it ‘country and eastern.’”
Thayil, frontman Chris Cornell and company broke up in 1996, and their last album, Down on the Upside
, arrived that year. The band have been writing their follow-up ever since they get back together in 2010.
