Soundgarden share unreleased 1994 tour video

Soundgarden are sharing an unreleased video for “Night Surf”, featuring an instrumental by bassist Ben Shepherd that was used to open the band’s 1994 US tour in support of “Superunknown.”

“Directed by Henry Shepherd,” explains guitarist Kim Thayil, “the work has otherwise never been available, or shown since, until now. Those who were in attendance, and attentive to the intro at a Soundgarden concert during this tour have been the only ones fortunate enough to view and hear ‘Night Surf.’

“The song had never been released before, and now it is newly remastered for the 'Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across the Path' box set collection of non-album tracks, and rarities.

“The film had been buried in storage,”
adds the guitarist, “and only recently was it located, dusted off, and remastered for its debut here, online, or anywhere after 21 years!"

A vinyl edition of the “Echo of Miles” package will be released on May 18.

A few months ago, Thayil revealed that the Seattle band plan to release a new album in 2016.
