“Live From The Artists Den”, the three-time New York Emmy-nominated television series which pairs world-class musicians with unique venues to create intimate, once-in-a-lifetime concerts, filmed SOUNDGARDEN‘s February 17 concert at Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
In front of a rapturous crowd, SOUNDGARDEN interwove brand new songs with classics, radio hits with rarities never before performed for a live audience. Over a varied 28-song set, they showcased their history, dazzled with their musicianship and captured the imaginations of everyone in the room.
Enjoy a first glimpse of SOUNDGARDEN‘s upcoming episode of “Live From The Artists Den”, set to air on public television in 2013.
SOUNDGARDEN released the music video on January 29 for “By Crooked Steps”, the second single from the quartet’s new album, “King Animal”. Singer Chris Cornell told The Pulse Of Radio a little about the tune: “It’s one of the earlier songs that we started working on, but I also felt like it, to me, is like definitely sort of a new chapter for us. If you wanted to take one example of SOUNDGARDEN progressing, that’s a good one for me.”
The “By Crooked Steps” clip was directed by FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl, who submitted a treatment for the video on his own initiative after hearing the song.
“King Animal” came out last November and was SOUNDGARDEN‘s first set of all-new material in 16 years.
