In a new interview with Rockpalast, Soundgarden members Chris Cornell and Ben Shepherd had the following to say.

-Ben on when he knew Soundgarden was back, “When I was hitchhiking a ride to meet Chris and the guys at Chris’ hotel in downtown Seattle, I smirked and went yeah here we go, we’re going to be in the same room, it’s going to be cool.”

-Soundgarden could have reunited sooner, but they couldn’t get in a room together. Chris said he knew they were back once they did that and enjoyed spending time together.

-when asked about Soundgarden’s future plans, Chris Cornell said the most exciting thing is thinking about what the next Soundgarden song will sound like.

-Chris mentioned that with 13 new songs, the dynamic of Soundgarden’s live shows will change. He expects the songs to develop a life of their own as live songs.

    It´s so weird. Why even come to this page if you only want to troll? Why bother? Why dont just sit at home alone and think bad thoughts about grunge?
    It´s the same thing as going to a page for soccer, with the only purpose to write that soccer sucks. I mean… why?!?!

  8. Yo says:

    Why do you people care so much?!?!? It’s just some guy fucking around, yet it brings out the most emotional response as if he’s harassing your child or something. I think that track listing it particularly funny compared to the usual comments made by Mayan or whoever.

  9. Rob says:

    Anyone know the soundgarden presale password for the tour?

  10. bon3z says:

    Rob: the password is “stinky grandma’s balls”

  11. Rob says:

    bon3z, that did not work? Do you think capitalization and spacing might be my problem? maybe it is B@lls?

    too many options to know for sure

  12. Deviate says:

    I thought the password was “M@y@n L1k3s L@rg3 Ob3ct$ Up H1s A$$h0le”

    :) im glad you all like my future soundgarden song listings , but some of you will laugh and others will bitch about the mayan god, it dont matter. Because Soundgarden are seriously considering how they should produce their next album, and guess what?? Sources close to Universal Music , which is the parent company of A&M , Soundgardens old label, have talked about considering a fan based rock album and so far, my ideals have been submitted to Soundgarden and Chris Cornell has given me personal feedback. Hes likes the ideal and wants to name the next album: Sonic War, now as for the song titles, he only likes some of the songs i have suggested like : Coal Mine Fucker, Revoltage, Sonic War, Witchcraft, Blue berry Frog Jam and Soul Justice! So im very happy to see this happen soon :)
