Soundgarden reunion tour dates

Following their 2010 reunion shows, Soundgarden’s 2011 tour is now underway and going well.  According to Rolling Stone magazine, frontman Chris Cornell says Soundgarden’s material doesn’t sound nostagic and playing with the band “feels fresh and vital”.

The grunge icons are currently working on a new album – their first since 1996’s ‘Down On The Upside’ – but have no plans to premier any new material during the live shows.  The upcoming album will be produced by Adam Kaspar, but as yet no further details have been released.
