Earlier this year, the reunited Soundgarden released “Live To Rise,” their first new song in a decade and a half, which served pretty well as end-credits music for The Avengers. And now, we’re learning that the band isn’t waiting until next summer’s biggest movie to release more music (though it would be pretty funny if they only made songs for blockbuster end-credits).
As Blabbermouth points out, guitarist Kim Thayil tells Rolling Stone that they’re planning to drop the next album, which doesn’t yet have a title, on 11/13: “It re-establishes that we still rock, we’re still heavy, and we’re still a little weird.” Sample song titles include “Blood On The Valley Floor” and “A Thousand Days Before.” Of the latter song, Thayil says it “has a little Indian thing and some chicken-pickin’. We call it ‘country and eastern.'” That sounds pretty OK!
