Stereogum reports that the information came through a press release announcing that Cornell will tour Australia and New Zealand later this year where he will play old hits and songs from ‘Higher Truth’ in an “unplugged, up-close, and personal setting.”

Cornell was in the news last year after a woman was charged with allegedly tweeting him over 100 abusive and violent messages from nine different Twitter accounts. Another woman, Jessica Leigh Robbins, was later arrested for sending death threats to the 50-year-old and his family.

Soundgarden reformed in 2010 and released the album ‘King Animal’ in 2012
