New Soundgarden album due in November

The long-awaited new Soundgarden is on its way this fall.

The group’s as-yet-untitled reunion album is due for release on November 13.

In the upcoming August 30 issue of Rolling Stone, guitarist Kim Thayil talks about the project, saying "It re-establishes that we still rock, we're still heavy, and we're still a little weird."

Thayil also confirmed that tracks titled “Blood On The Valley Floor” and “A Thousand Days Before” will appear on the record. Speaking about the latter, Thayil described it as "a little Indian thing and some chicken-pickin. We call it 'country and eastern.'"

It will be the band's first album of new material since 1996's “Down On The Upside.”

Earlier this year, Soundgarden released “Live To Rise,” the band’s first new song in 15 years, as part of the soundtrack for the film, "Marvel's The Avengers."
