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).
Tomorrow, Soundgarden release King Animal, their first album in sixteen years. Tonight (November 12), you can see them perform some of their new songs, alongside some of their classics, from the stage of the Ed Sullivan Theater, home of The Late Show With David Letterman.
When Soundgarden said they were coming back, they meant it. The band has lined up a special “Live On Letterman” webcast for next week, as well as announcing a slew of 2013 tour dates, including two-night stands in Chicago, L.A. and Seattle.
Just hours before Soundgarden drops their new new album, the Seattle foursome will take the stage to treat online viewers worldwide to a webcast featuring fan favorites as well as tracks from King Animal.
Soundgarden continues to tease fans with tracks from their upcoming new album, the band’s first in 16 years. This fiery new track sounds like one big mosh-pit just waiting to happen.
Watch the band play new ones off their latest album, ‘Battle Born,’ and tackle some of their biggest hits from their previous three records.
Before playing the “One Headlight,” Jakob Dylan took issue with some incorrect lyric transcriptions that he’s seen online. “I would never write a line that says ‘I’m so alone!’ It’s ‘I sit alone!’ Big difference! ‘I’m so alone’ is a bit dramatic for my speed!”
Watch The Wallflowers perform live from the Ed Sullivan Theater tonight at 9 pm EST.
Mumford & Sons acknowledged the history of the venue and their fellow Brits, the Beatles, who made their debut there way back in 1964. And the banter didn’t end there.
