Since reuniting in 2010 following a 13-year hiatus, SOUNDGARDEN has embarked on an extensive restoration of its catalog, including deluxe archival versions of the classic albums “Badmotorfinger” and “Superunknown”, along with a three-disc collection of rarities, B-sides and previously unreleased tracks called “Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path”.

SOUNDGARDEN has been slowly working on material for its seventh studio album and will enter the studio sometime in 2017 to begin recording. The disc will follow up 2012’s “King Animal”.

Work on a new record started in 2015, but SOUNDGARDEN took breaks while Cornell toured his “Higher Truth” solo effort and drummer Matt Cameron hit the road with PEARL JAM.
