The Big Kahuna Hard Music, News
After 12 years of working on other projects, the Grammy-winning godfathers of grunge are reuniting to rock. Chris Cornell, Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd are lifting the proverbial lid off Soundgarden and rejoining the “Soundtable.” The group formed more than a quarter of a century ago in Seattle, which they helped turn into the capital of grunge. Their single “Hunted Down” was one of the first releases on Sub Pop, the label that went on to sign Mudhoney and Nirvana.

The band released five albums over nine years, including their 1994 breakthrough Superunknown, which featured “Spoonman” and “Black Hole Sun.” After releasing Down on the Upside in 1996, the group shared a bill with Metallica on the Lollapalooza tour before disbanding. Though Cornell enjoyed significant success in his other musical endeavor, Audioslave, and released three solo albums, fans of the rock star are undoubtedly thrilled to see him return to his origins. Of course, Thayil, Cameron and Shepherd kept busy this past decade-plus, too; Thayil and Shepherd collaborated with countless other musicians, and Cameron stepped in to drum for Pearl Jam.

Together again, Soundgarden can celebrate a legacy Hit Parader writer Henry Wilson described as “a brilliant display of technical proficiency tempered by heart-felt emotion.” A headlining spot at Lollapalooza is completely fitting, as it will allow the group to pick up where they left off—only now, the band brings years of outside influences that will likely give their classic tunes a fresh perspective.  For more information, please go to :
