Soundgarden making a record

By | Published on Thursday 17 February 2011


I remember when Soundgarden split up in 1997, Kerrang! asked Chris Cornell why. He told them it was partly because they’d released five good albums and they didn’t want to spoil it by recording a bad one. Whether Cornell is now confident his band have another good album in them, or he’s just lowered his standards, isn’t clear.

But either way, the band issued a statement via their website on Tuesday saying: “Over the past few months, we’ve been busy jamming, writing and hanging out together – exploring the creative aspect of being Soundgarden. It feels great. We have some cool new songs that we are going to record very soon”.
