What a fitting title for Soundgarden's brand new single, since for all intents and purposes, they had 'Been Away Too Long.' Diehard fans of the Seattle band have missed them for the past several years, and while the reunion, live performances and 'Avengers' song 'Live to Rise' have been rad and appreciated, this is the beefy, puts-hair-on-your-chest Soundgarden rocker we've been waiting for.
All the details for the upcoming Soundgarden disc are coming into place, piece by piece. With a confirmed title of ‘King Animal’ and the first single ‘Been Away Too Long’ set to impact radio shortly, the band now has officially confirmed the release date while sharing the cover art and finalizing the disc’s track listing.
While many fans have been patiently awaiting the promise of new Soundgarden tunes as the band keeps an air of suspense surrounding their upcoming reunion album, the wait may finally be over. Rumor has it the reunited band’s first official single from the new disc will impact radio next week, with the tune aptly titled ‘Been Away Too Long' -- isn't that the truth!
Fans hoping to see Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell perform at the Budweiser Made in America festival in Philadelphia, Pa. over the weekend were disappointed to find out he had cancelled the appearance due to a scheduling conflict. Although not able to make Made in America, Cornell did find himself on stage at a campaign rally for President Barack Obama on Saturday (Sept. 1) in Des Moines, Iowa.
