Matt Cameron wrote:Hello Knights of the Soundtable faithful,

I will be taking 2014 off from Soundgarden touring due to prior commitments promoting "Lightning Bolt" with my brothers in Pearl Jam and the desire to have more time at home with my family. I am trying to balance the many twists and turns of my awesome music career. This is temporary. I am still an active member of Soundgarden. Chris, Ben, Kim and I are in the process of finding the perfect substitute for the upcoming Soundgarden dates in 2014.

Thank you all for listening and the Years of Support!

Loudest of Love.
Matt Cameron

Soundgarden To Perform At Former Auschwitz Concentration Camp
According to The Pulse of Radio, Soundgarden will be performing the 2014 Life Festival in the Polish town of Oswiecim, formerly known as Auschwitz. The festival, founded in 2010 by Darek Maciborek, is intended to “break the spell” cast over the town and destroy the dark stigma attached to it. The main concept of the Festival is “to build peaceful relations beyond cultural and state borders where there is no place for anti-Semitism, racism, and other forms of xenophobia.”

Soundgarden will be performing on Friday, June 27.

Just got this email from Soundgarden's site.

"SOUNDGARDEN NEEDS YOUR HELP!
DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKERS WANT YOUR MEMORABILIA

It’s happening – the Soundgarden story will soon be the subject of a feature documentary film. And you can help. As we dig deep into our vaults, we ask that you, the fans, dig into yours.
Personal photographs, bootleg video and audio, collected concert posters – your rare piece of music history could be the missing piece we need.
If you want a chance for your memento to become a permanent part of Soundgarden history, send a description of what you’ve got to info@bangerfilms.com with the subject "Soundgarden Fan Submission".
The Soundgarden film is being produced by Banger Films, makers of the essential heavy metal documentary Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey (2006), SXSW Audience Award and Juno-winning Iron Maiden: Flight 666 (2009), Grammy-nominated and Tribeca Audience Award-winning Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage (2010), the “doc opera” Super Duper Alice Cooper (2014), as well as the biggest-ever TV series on metal and hard rock, Metal Evolution (2011)."

Wow, that SG doc never really went anywhere, did it?

Also, new Cornell is standard fare IMO.

In a new Detroit Free Press interview, Kim Thayil revealed that Soundgarden’s next release will be a reissue of Louder Than Love.

Reiterating what he’s said in recent weeks, Thayil says Soundgarden is finished as a performing and recording band, although he’ll continue to tend to the band’s catalog and merchandise interests. Already he’s digging through unreleased material, including live recordings and studio work going back to the Seattle band’s Sub Pop days, in anticipation of special releases.

Also in the works is a deluxe reissue of 1989’s “Louder than Love,” which will demo material and live cuts with then-bassist Jason Everman.

With Soundgarden, “we were always somewhere between Rush and ‘Kick Out the Jams,’ ” Thayil says. “There was a progressive tightness required because of our time signatures and odd tunings, but there was a loudness and wildness that was brought by Ben (Shepherd) and I, and before that Hiro (Yamamoto) and I.”

Soundgarden were working on a new album at the time of Chris Cornell’s death, with ‘six strong songs’ having been written. It’s unclear when that material may see the light of day.

That's about what I expected, as I LOVED the remastering of Ultramega OK.

Kim Thayil has confirmed in a new Rolling Stone interview that Soundgarden are working on new songs that they were demoing for a new album at the time of Chris Cornell’s death.

Thayil said that a consideration when it came to the Chris Cornell career retrospective, set for release on November 16th, was to make sure that the contents of the compilation stayed out of the way of some future projects that might eventually see release, including some new, unheard Soundgarden songs the band was refining at the time Chris died.

“We were working on an album before everything came to a head, so we have some pretty strong demo material that we’re still trying to finish developing and accessing some of the recording material, to be able to flesh it out,” Thayil says.

He said he remains in contact with Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd.

“I talk to Matt all the time. We text, we’ll go out to dinner together with family,” Thayil says. “Ben and I will text out of the blue. We have so many mutual friends in common that we tend to cross over and see each other.”

Fans have long clamored to know what the fate of Soundgarden’s unfinished followup to 2012’s King Animal would be. It was expected to be finished and released by the end of 2017, but tragically Chris Cornell’s death ended those plans. Cornell said in his final red carpet interview in April 2017 that Soundgarden’s new album was his top priority.

Members of Soundgarden had said in interviews that the band had six new ‘strong’ songs. Cornell also has unreleased material with Audioslave, which Tom Morello has said he hopes to see released someday. An unreleased Chris Cornell solo track called “When Bad Does Good” was recently released, featuring a few lyrics from the Soundgarden song “By Crooked Steps”.
