VIDEO: Temple Of The Dog issue Hunger Strike remix

Seattle supergroup Temple Of The Dog are streaming a new video/remix of their classic hit, “Hunger Strike”, as a preview to the upcoming release of a special 25th anniversary reissue collection of their 1991 self-titled debut.

With new audio produced by Brendan O’Brien, the clip presents what appears to be unused additional footage from the original video shoot back in the day featuring Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder in a rundown home.

“Hunger Strike” was the lead single from 1991 release, delivering a Top 5 US hit that helped the album earn platinum status in the States.

The remix is featured on the updated package, which will be available September 30 on the two CD Deluxe and 4-disc Super Deluxe editions, while single CD and double LP sets will also be available from the group that features members of both Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.

“Hunger Strike” is the second tune previewed from the set following a demo of an unreleased song, “Black Cat.”

The lineup of Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard and Mike McCready, and drummer Matt Cameron – who plays with both bands – are reconnecting to perform this fall in support of the 25th anniversary reissue.

The group’s first-ever tour will see Temple Of The Dog perform eight concerts in five cities starting in Philadelphia, PA on November 4.
