For good or ill, all the music from the 90s is coming back. Sure, the return of Limp Bizkit, Sugar Ray, and that guy from Smash Mouth making a country record isn’t really good news, but at least we’ve got Sunny Day Real Estate and Blur reunions to wash that down. Now we can add an inevitable Soundgarden reunion to the list.
When the band, sans Chris Cornell, reformed for a set of old Soundgarden favorites with Tad Doyle and Tom Morello in late March, the reunion talk was sparked. Then Chris Cornell started using some cryptic language in interviews to suggest that he was open to the idea of getting the band back together, but he was careful not to turn the spotlight off the promotion of his current solo project.
Now in an interview by Kerrang! (via Blabbermouth) with Shinedown’s Brent Smith, the frontman let a new development slip: “There’s talk of a reuniting of Soundgarden in the States soon,” he said. “I know actually someone specific who told me that, who is actually specifically in their organisation. Kinda told me that they’re talking about it.”
