Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell recently weighed in on the "rock is dead" argument, opened up about his own experiences with drug abuse and marvels at how 70's rockers could "be completely f---ed up all the time and still function."
The Soundgarden comeback is officially underway as they have posted a clip of 'Live to Rise' -- their first completely new song to be heard in nearly 16 years -- which is taken from the soundtrack for the upcoming blockbuster 'The Avengers.'
Chris Cornell paid tribute to late songstress Whitney Houston with an emotional rendition of 'I Will Always Love You' during his performance at a fundraiser for President Barack Obama last night (Feb 16).
Soundgarden hit the road last year on their first tour since going on hiatus in 1997, but plans for a new album from the grunge goliaths seem to keep getting pushed back. Last March they revealed that they had about a dozen songs "kind of ready to go," yet it's nearly a year later and no release date has been announced. So, what's up with the comeback album? What will it sound like and when will it drop?
Soundgarden went on hiatus in 1997 but it was believed that the band had just broken up. Singer Chris Cornell, who fronted Audioslave in between the hiatus and the band's return to activity, recently opened up about the semantics of "indefinite hiatus" versus "breaking up." With the benefit of hindsight, Cornell admitted that the band members should have used different terminology in order to make navigating the murky "Soundgarden are currently inactive" waters more manageable for everyone involved.
Chris Cornell fans eagerly anticipating the next chapter of the Soundgarden frontman's solo career, your wait is over. Cornell's fourth solo album, 'Songbook,' is due out next week, and in advance of the Nov. 21 release date it's being issued digitally as three shorter EPs.
Soundgarden fans, rejoice! Chris Cornell recently told Billboard.com that the new Soundgarden album is “mostly done.” He went on to say that, "We just need to finish a couple of songs and mix it, so that will be happening probably over the holidays."
Since their reunion in 2010, fans have been waiting for one thing – a new album from Soundgarden. But, don't go asking for it for Christmas just yet because as of Chris Cornell’s last report, the tentative release date is not until Spring of 2012.
