Soundgarden PR

The title alone points to “Black Rain” as Soundgarden’s comeback single (See also: “Black Hole Sun,” “Fell On Black Days”). The track leaked over the weekend following the band’s pre-Lolla warm-up show at Chicago’s Vic Theatre (they headlined the fest last night), but it was due shortly anyway. Listen for “Black Rain” on your local alt rock radio station tomorrow. It’ll also appear on Soundgarden’s upcoming greatest hits compilation, Telephantasm, as well as Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock. It isn’t new material, though. The band recorded “Black Rain” during the sessions for 1991′s Badmotorfinger. Keep that in mind as you listen to the stream:

Telephantasm is out 9/28 via A&M.

  1. it’s already been removed… :-(

  2. So good to hear him making full use of those vocal chords.

  3. Cue the untraditional time signature, the guitar/bass unison, and the high screaming. I really wanted to like this, but it sounds like a b-side of Superunknown. I’m glad they’re together, and I hope they create a really good album.

  4. Brilliant piece of work. All the people who whined about Audioslave(who I liked) can now rock out to Soundgarden again. But… as predicted, the internet is more interested in Lady GooGoo crowd surfing a la Courtney Love than any real music.

  5. He’s pretty much the biggest sell-out of the previous decade. Not sure if he can come back from it.
    (Good tune though)
