Soundgarden Begins Work On New Album

Been awhile since we've heard from these Grunge giants, the last time was during their small tour in 2010 where they actually played the creepily awesome Beyond The Wheel without Chris sounding like he's being grated like cheese. Video can be seen below and courtesy of Soundgarden off of their youtube channel.

They posted the following update on their official website:

"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.

"Thank you for all of the support!

Loudest of Love,

Ben, Chris , Kim and Matt"

Just seeing Kim's name included in that statement is already making me anticipate this album very badly. Here's hoping that the album will be released sooner than later cause they might just part ways again.

Photos of their recording process can be viewed here or from their official Facebook page.

The last new material that came from Soundgarden was in the form of a single called Black Rain which was included in their 2010 compilation album, Telephantasm. Kim Thayil also wrote and composed a new piece which is available on iTunes called The Telephantasm.
