Chris Cornell has been getting intimate with audiences across the world during his acoustic Songbook Tour over the past year. The Soundgarden recently played a solo show in London, where he broke out a rendition of the Beatles‘ ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ classic ‘A Day in the Life.’
The '90s, more specifically the early '90s, were a glorious time period in rock music. It was the dawning of a new era. Out with the hair metal bands, and in with the raw, unapologetic power of grunge.
Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil made a statement years ago that is blasphemous to headbangers. He once said that the band wanted to sound like “Black Sabbath without the parts that suck.” Wait, what? There are parts of Sabbath that suck? Who knew. See what we meant about blasphemy?
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.
Now that you can officially stream the full-length version of ‘Live to Rise,’ Soundgarden‘s song on the ‘Avengers’ soundtrack — and first new music in 15 years — you’re probably wondering how it fits into the band’s next album, due sometime this year.
Soundgarden fans unite! Chris Cornell and the gang have revealed a full version of their brand new song ‘Live to Rise’ — their first in well over 15 years. The tune will be featured on the upcoming blockbuster film ‘The Avengers.’

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell and Evanescence lead singer Amy Lee will pay tribute to country music legend Johnny Cash in April.
