Reunited grunge legends SOUNDGARDEN are offering a free download of the songs “Thousand Days Before” and “Rowing” from their recent performance on “Late Show With David Letterman” as a “thank you” to their fans for their support in 2012. Enter B33CMZ at this location to redeem the recording.
SOUNDGARDEN tapped FOO FIGHTERS frontman and documentary director Dave Grohl to get behind the camera on Tuesday (December 18) and shoot the band’s new video for its song “By Crooked Steps”. The track is taken from SOUNDGARDEN‘s first album in 16 years, “King Animal”, which came out last month and sold 83,000 copies in its first week of release to debut at No. 5 on the Billboard album chart.
Grohl has directed a number of videos for FOO FIGHTERS, and has completed his first feature-length documentary, “Sound City”, which will be released early next year. The film chronicles the history of the legendary Los Angeles studio where acts like NIRVANA, FLEETWOOD MAC, TOM PETTY, METALLICA and many others recorded classic albums.
“By Crooked Steps” will likely follow “Been Away Too Long” as the second single from “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.”
SOUNDGARDEN reunited in 2010 after a 13-year break, releasing a retrospective collection called “Telephantasm” and a concert album titled “Live On I-5”.
The band kicks off a winter North American tour on January 18, 2013 in Washington DC.
