Soundgarden name comeback album ‘King Animal’

Grunge veterans also unveil snippet of new track 'Worse Dreams' - listen

Soundgarden have named their long-awaited comeback studio album ‘King Animal’.

The band have also released a short preview of the track ‘Worse Dreams’, which can be heard below. The grunge veterans, who split up in 1996, last released an album in that same year and have been working on its follow-up since they reunited in 2010.

It is confirmed for release on November 12 in the UK and November 13 in the US. Other tracks slated to appear on the record include ‘Blood On The Valley Floor’ and ‘A Thousand Days Before’.

Earlier this year, Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell told NME that the band’s follow-up to 1996’s ‘Down On The Upside’ would “pick up where they left off”.

He said: “We have an album coming out in the fall. It’s kind of hard to describe, it’s sort of picking up where we left off. There’s a lot of different feels on the album. We’re a band where every single member contributes music so that makes it very diverse. It’s a very rich album with a lot of different moods to it.”
