Soundgarden have released a short 30-second snippet of what is the group’s first new song in 15 years. The track will appear on the soundtrack for The Avengers movie which will appear in Australian cinemas from the 25th of May.
Their new album has been highly anticipated since its announcement last year. In a recent interview with Triple M, Chris Cornell said of the new album, “It sounds like Soundgarden.. but I wouldn’t say it’s similar.. I think there are parts of it that are there to remind everybody of us, but we’ve always progressed from album to album.”
In the same interview he also spoke about returning to Australia soon to do a “proper headlining tour”, after their recent appearance on the Big Day Out 2012 line-up.
