Soundgarden have released the video for “Live To Rise,” the band’s first new song in 15 years.
The track is the first single from the soundtrack for the new film, "Marvel's The Avengers," which opens Friday.
Also featured on the soundtrack are tunes from Shinedown, Rise Against, Bush and Five Finger Death Punch, among others.
Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell told Billboard recently that the band were approached in early March to contribute a song to the film. They were working on their reunion album, a fall release of which is anticipated, and after going through their tracks nothing seemed appropriate. Cornell and guitarist Kim Thayil started from scratch and came up with "Live to Rise."
