Rolling Stone quotes Chris Cornell as saying that Soundgarden is reuniting.
Soundgarden fans woke up to incredible news this New Year’s morning: the band, which split in 1997, is officially reuniting. Frontman Chris Cornell confirmed the reconciliation via Twitter, writing, “The 12 year break is over & school is back in session. Sign up now. Knights of the Soundtable ride again!”
Hopefully this means new material and not simply a tour. We’ll see. But anything would be better than another Scream.
First Pavement and now Soundgarden. It sure makes you feel old when bands from your college days start reuniting.
