Soundgarden: Woman charged for tweeting death threats to Chris Cornell

A Seattle woman has been charged for allegedly tweeting death threats to Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell.

KIRO 7 Seattle reports the woman reportedly sent over 100 messages to Cornell from a total of nine different Twitter accounts.

The postings also alluded to a rape of Cornell's 13-year-old daughter.

Prosecutors say those tweets constituted cyber-stalking and they filed criminal charges against the woman last week.

The Seattle rockers recently reissued their debut Sub Pop EPs – 1987’s “Screaming Life” and 1988’s “Fopp.”

Remastered by producer Jack Endino, the reissue marks the first time these tracks are available digitally, and their first appearance on vinyl since the original, late-80s pressings (notwithstanding a long-gone, late-’90s repress of “Screaming Life”).

Soundgarden kick off their 2014 live dates in Lima, Peru on March 27; they’ll follow that up with performances at Lollapalooza in Chile, Argentina and Brazil.
