I'm joking, I am interested but everytime I see it at the top I pray they have announced a tour, despite the fact I'm on their mailing list so I would probably hear about it first there.

Are they doing a new album then? I've been slightly disillusioned with their re-union, mainly because the only thing that interested me was the prospect of seeing them live again (I had no interest in some godawful Guitar Hero cash-in compilation) and like Jonson said, the fact that it's been over a year and still no UK dates has left me somewhat disappointed. If there were a new record on the horizon though, it'd give me at least a smidgen of fresh hope.

Telephantasm is their latest album, but it's got a lot of stuff on there you've already heard. Some of their live tracks are OK, some of the unrelaesed stuff is pretty good, and the Radio version of Fell On Black Days is great. It's not quite a new album but it's worth getting if you're a fan.
It must be 15 years ago when I last saw them live, I'd really like to see them again. We got to go backstage at Rock City and I have one of Matt Cameron's drumsticks at home and a plectrum from Ben Shepherd. Nice guys as well.

I never got to see them on the Down On The Upside tour so the last time I saw them was at Reading in '95, which wasn't one of their best gigs (or perhaps it just wasn't one of mine - I ws 18 and hopped up on some funny-tasting tablet a bad lady gave me). Either way, I've always felt I had unfinished business with them as the only other time I saw them was at Gateshead stadium in 1992 (with G'N'R and Faith No More) where they were great but only seemed to be onstage for about half an hour. Despite their million-selling status, they always struck me as a band who would come into their own in a sweaty club rather than a huge outdoor festival.

Soundgarden will headline the 20th Anniversary of the Big Day Out Festival in New Zealand and Australia from 20th January 2012 to 5th February 2012.

Still looking likely that UK dates will be next year.

Had a Tweet from @ChrisCornell saying there is a "new" Soundgarden song appearing in the Avengers movie called Live To Rise.
Will it be "New" New or "Black Rain" New i wonder?

Also headlining Hard Rock Calling in London Friday 13th july

So I just heard Soundgarden's new song for The Avenger's soundtrack, and it's... awful. Really bland and awful.

Hopefully this isn't a taster for the way they're going with the new album. Superunknown and Down on the Upside were tough, heavy badass rock records. The new single, Live to Rise, just sounds like anonymous, conveyor belt, rock radio friendly fodder.

Now, there's nothing necessarily wrong with radio friendly music, but there's no excuse for this be so bland and uninspired.

It's rather dull. If I didn't recognise his voice I'd swear it was any number of bland interchangeable rock acts. Where's the mysitique, the darkness, the riffs, the batshit mental time signatures, and above all else, the groove? Still intrigued to hear an album but that just sounds like Audioslave.

How odd: just came on to this forum to start some kind of Soundgarden forum, my favourite band for quite a while now, and this is here! Audioslave were decent and basically made the same 3 songs over and over, but Soundgarden (and TotD) are just on another level altogether. Cornell's voice in his prime was the greatest instrument ever.

New Avengers song is very dull, though. More Aduioslave-y then Soundgarden. Bleh

I hope the rest of the new stuff's been a collaborative effort and not just all written by Cornell (who seems to have, ahem, lost the knack over the last fifteen years). Some of my favourite Soundgarden tunes were written by the other three - Cameron and Thayil's Limo Wreck and Ben Shepherd's Head Down being two of the band's finest moments - heavy, mysterious, psychedelic, dripping with emotion - everything this Avengers tune isn't.

The new song is free on itunes at the moment
Sounds like a typical movie song to me
Quite like the intro riff and the chorus has stuck with me, but I can see where you are coming from

Cornell has said in interview thats its a "Family Friendly Song" specifically for the movie
& the new album has several songs "left of centre to appeal to the hardcore Soundgarden fan" & not those who would be fans of Live to Rise

But then I also remember him & Timbaland saying Scream would become everyones new favourite album

Yeah, I can see where he's coming from on that, and I guess it was unrealistic to expect a typically heavy and aggressive Soundgarden song to accompany a mainstream 12A comic book movie. But still, the song sucks, and family friendly isn't an excuse for it being that bland.

Exactly, why not make a fun pop-y song like they did back in the day? I'd take recycled old soundgarden over this new bland rock. For the movie that is...not for a new album

Maybe they are using The Avengers just to get their name back out there.
And playing their cards very close to their chests with regards what the new album sounds like.

Looking at concert footage from the last year or so Cornell seems to have really lost his voice. You could just call it a different style but when you go from what he could produce with those chords in the 90's to anything else...it's a dissapointment.

I keep hearing that Cornell has supposedly lost it when it comes to singing Soundgarden songs, but for my money his voice sounds better these days than it ever did. Maybe it's just because I'm not as familiar with Soundgarden as I could be so am not as bothered by the difference or just really like the raspier quality in his singing voice, but if he's lost it I wouldn't mind losing it too.

Have to agree with this - the footage I saw from Download was shocking - musically great, but Cornell's vocals just didn't cut it.

Whilst I take on board what Larry says above about still thinking his voice sounds good, that's as maybe. But it's a Soundgarden reunion which, for me, hasn't been sounding like Soundgarden of late as Cornell's range just isn't there.

I will admit that I've not seen much footage from the last year, so it could be that when I have seen him, he's merely been having an off day. I hope so, as to see Soundgarden again is top of my most wanted list.

I was impressed with his voice when I saw them at Hyde Park the other month. Particularly on Beyond The Wheel. That's an incredibly difficult song to sing, and he hit every note and made it look easy. People have been saying he's lost his voice ever since Audioslave started, but he's been one of the most consistently great vocalists in the world over the last ten years.

They are previewing the first song off the new album on their website

I have only listened to it once on my phone so far so cant get a real feel for it
First impressions are that it doesnt obviously sound like Soundgarden
More like Cornells solo stuff circa his Carry On album
I will give it a few more spins when I can get to a proper pc to form a fuller opinion

Didn't see it but will have a look when I get home.
Not heard anything for the new album yet, but so excited.
I also note that they are playing in London tomorrow night and I can't go. Gutted. Seen them 2 or 3 times in the early 90's, including meeting them backstage at Rock City (I still have Ben Shepherd's plectrum at home - how sad )
