Frontman Chris Cornell says the band are coming back

Soundgarden look set to reform after a 12-year hiatus.

The US rockers, who disbanded in 1997 following tensions in the band have put an announcement on their website,, suggesting that they are set to gear up again soon.

“The 12 year break is over and school is back in session,” the message read. Frontman Chris Cornell added on his Twitter page, “Knights of the Soundtable ride again!”

Members of Soundgarden have played together since the disbandment, but Cornell has previously said that they wouldn’t consider any reunion a full reformation unless all the original members were involved.

“When Soundgarden broke up, my discussions with the rest of the band was ‘We have to have an agreement that we will never tour SoundgardenSoundgarden will never exist – without it being a unanimous decision and that everyone who was in the band is in the band’,” he told NME.COM.

The band members are yet to reveal what their reunion will entail.
