Hotly tipped Lollapalooza appearance aside, it is official now – school is back in session for the reunited (and it feels so good) Soundgarden. On September 28th, the revered Seattle heavy grunge group will release its first album in 14 years, the career retrospective Telephantasm, via A&M/UMe.

Culling its considerable weight from the band’s monster hits such as “Rusty Cage,” “Black Hole Sun,” “Spoonman” and “Fell on Black Days,” along with deep catalogue material and a never-heard track from the Badmotorfinger sessions called “Black Rain,” Telephantasm will also be available to one million customers of Guitar Hero®: Warriors of Rock.

Telephantasm will be available in three expanded versions: “a double-disc with 12 additional tracks, 5 of which are previously unreleased, and Soundgarden’s first-ever DVD, featuring 20 videos, 13 of which have never been released, a Deluxe 3-LP Vinyl Edition and an individually numbered Super Deluxe Collector’s Edition.”

  1. I was happy to hear that they were getting back together, even though their heyday is long over. Hearing that the first album back will only have one new track is disappointing. I was honestly expecting new material.
