Matt Cameron mans the drum kit for both Soundgarden and Pearl Jam -- two of the biggest bands in rock today. In a new interview with the busy stickman, he reveals why the Soundgarden album was pushed back, when the new Pearl Jam album will be done and how he keeps it all together.
Soundgarden have roared back into the rock world with a vengeance. Not only will the band release a new album later this year, but the grunge goliaths recently hit fans with their first 100-percent new song in 16 years, 'Live to Rise.' Now, the track off the 'Avengers Assemble' compilation has taken over the No. 1 spot on the Active Rock airplay chart.
By now, every music fan under the 'Black Hole Sun' knows that Soundgarden has reunited, with the legendary band recently contributing a brand new track called 'Live to Rise' to ‘The Avengers’ soundtrack. More importantly, the band has been working on a disc full of new tunes due out this fall.
Soundgarden will be releasing a box set of their four albums released on A&M Records in late May. The set will include 'Louder Than Love,' 'Badmotorfinger,' 'Superunknown' and 'Down on the Upside.' The band's debut disc, 'Ultramega OK,' which was released on SST Records, will not be included in the set.
Fans have already waited 16 years to hear new music from Soundgarden, so what’s a few more months right? As the band's fans patiently wait for the fall release of their new disc, Universal Music is offering up a sweet grungy treat. In celebration of the Soundgarden reunion, the label is releasing a Soundgarden classic album box set, fittingly dubbed ‘Soundgarden – Classic Album Selection,’ due out in May.
Sixx: A.M.'s new single ‘Are You With Me Now’ earned a win over Our Lady Peace's 'Heavyweight' in Loudwire's most recent Cage Match. Will Sixx: A.M. be able to do it again against today’s heavyweight challenger?
