(hennemusic) As Soundgarden prepare to launch their European tour in support of "King Animal" on September 4 in Helsinki, Finland, guitarist Kim Thayil says the band will be taking an extended break from the road to work on a variety of projects.
"I think [after the European tour] that will be it for awhile," Thayil tells Seattle's KIRO Radio. "I know that [drummer] Matt [Cameron]'s going to be some touring with Pearl Jam and I think [singer] Chris [Cornell] is going to be working on a solo acoustic record and he might be playing some shows during that.
"And I will be working on compiling the Soundgarden B-sides box, which we have a lot of songs that were released on European and Australian releases, movie soundtracks, various things like that that have yet to be compiled and put into album form." more on this story
