Soundgarden has finally returned, and after 15 long years we've got a new song from the band. Have a listen to the full-track premiere of "Live to Rise," from the upcoming Avengers soundtrack, over at Antiquiet.
The band's sixth full-length studio album is on the way, with the grunge icons in the mixing stages at Chris Cornell's studio in Los Angeles. Adam Kaspar, who co-produced Soundgarden's last record, 1996's Down On The Upside, has been working with the group on the new effort as well.
When asked how he would compare Soundgarden's new material to the group's previous efforts, Cornell told Australia's rock station Triple M, "It sounds like Soundgarden, but I wouldn't say it's similar. I think there are parts of it that are gonna remind anybody of us, but we've always kind of progressed from album to album. So it's definitely not a throwback. It's not us getting back to our roots — it's not that — it's just kind of a natural progression, I think.
