Soundgarden fans woke up to incredible news this New Yearâ€™s morning: the band, which split in 1997, is officially reuniting.
And that’s about all the information available.
This might be the most amount of press Chris Cornell has ever received for a handful of words since Soundgarden’s split in ’97. Considering the washed-down alt-rock of Audioslave and Cornell’s pitiful solo work, there’s probably good reason the following tweet has people in stitches:
The 12 year break is over & school is back in session. Sign up now. Knights of the Soundtable ride again!
Yep. They’re back.
No information on the bandâ€™s reunion is available yet, but you can sign up to get all the updates on the newÂ Soundgarden website.
Chances are, you can probably count on Soundgarden headlining a night at Lollapalooza. And with the off chance that Pavement may also headline one night, what fantastic â€™90s alt-rock band will reunite next to potentially claim that third night headlining spot?! This is all hearsay of course, but a band like Soundgarden is basically guaranteed to play whatever they want whenever they want.
For fans who just canâ€™t possibly wait until the band announces tour dates, here is footage of Soundgarden sans Cornell, Tom Morello and Tad performing Spoonman last year. Enjoy:
