Soundgarden Making Slow Progress On New Album


(Metal Hammer) Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil is sharing an update on the Seattle band's follow-up album to 2012's "King Animal." The rocker admits band member's commitments to Pearl Jam and the upcoming Temple Of The Dog reunion have impacted the pace of the project, which is in the demo stage.

"Right now, there are some other projects that are taking up bandmembers' time," Thayil tells Whiplash with Full Metal Jackie of KLOS Los Angeles. "Matt's [Cameron] got some Pearl Jam touring and projects. Matt and Chris [Cornell] together, of course, are working on this Temple Of The Dog thing.

"Over the past year, we've had a number of songwriting and jam sessions, Soundgarden, getting together to simply exchange ideas and document and record them. So we've had some rough demos of a dozen or so songs. We'll continue to do this as everyone's schedules open up. Hopefully next year we'll find ourselves in the studio fleshing out these ideas."

Thayil's update confirms the progress on Soundgarden's next record is now up to a dozen demos, and follows comments made by Cameron in July that six tunes were taking shape at that time with another writing session scheduled for last month. Read more and stream the full interview here.
