Seattle-based Soundgarden have been around for almost three decades although, depending on what memory you ask the early initiators of grunge rock to recall, it might seem like 125 years ago or 10 years ago. […]

Although it’s been sixteen years since Soundgarden released a new album, their new material is as heavy and creepy as ever. And the band seem extremely enthused about their new music; dedicating 70% of their set to songs from King Animal, due out today (November 13).
