According to guitarist Kim Thayil, Soundgarden’s yet-to-be-titled new studio release will arrive Nov. 13 in the U.S. Yes, friends, we now have the ring and a date.
Thayil dished the news to Rolling Stone, adding that the upcoming album will be “a little weird.” He went on to explain that the new album “re-establishes that we still rock, we’re still heavy, and we’re still a little weird.”
He also announced a few of the album’s song titles, including “Blood on the Valley Floor” and “A Thousand Days Before,” the latter which Thayil says is “a little Indian thing and some chicken-pickin.’ We call it ‘country and eastern.’”
Thayil, frontman Chris Cornell and company broke up in 1996, and their last album, Down on the Upside, arrived that year. The band have been writing their follow-up ever since they get back together in 2010.
