Soundgarden may consider new album

By | Published on Tuesday 7 December 2010

Soundgarden, who reunited in April after twelve years apart, and who headlined this year’s Lollapalooza festival in the US, have said that they might record some new material. Well, guitarist Kim Thayil has. 

Confirming that a live album and B-sides collection was in the pipeline, Thayil also told Canadian radio station CFNY-FM: “When we get together to rehearse it’s natural for us… to start jamming and inventing. We’ve come up with instrumental and certainly, on occasion, lyrical ideas. I’m not confirming anything, but it’s impossible for us to get in a room and not come up with ideas”. 

Thayil added that his bandmates were busy with other projects at the moment, but said that they were all committed to the Soundgarden reunion too. He said: “The guys have other commitments but this is the thing we’re most excited about”.
