Marvel Music/Hollywood Records announce the return of Soundgarden with the release of the band’s first song in 15 years, “Live to Rise.” ¬†The song will be featured in the end credits to this year’s highly anticipated movie, “Marvel’s The Avengers.” ¬†”Live to Rise” is included on¬†Avengers Assemble, a 14-track compilation of music from and inspired by the film. Avengers Assemble¬†will be released on¬†May 1, 2012.
Soundgarden stated, “We’ve been hard at work on our new album, which will come out this Fall. When the opportunity arose to write an original song for ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’ film came our way, we thought it could be a cool match. We are excited to release our new song ‘Live To Rise,’ which is also the only new song in the film. Here’s a taste. Loudest of Love.”¬†http://youtu.be/lVWjZ6Hk9Jg
Also,¬†The Avengers¬†original motion picture soundtrack, with score by Oscar-nominated and GRAMMY-winning composer¬†Alan Silvestri¬†(“Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Forrest Gump,” the “Back to the Future” trilogy) will be available at online retailers on¬†May 1, 2012.
With over 21 million records sold worldwide, Soundgarden redefined rock music for a whole generation and had a revolutionary impact on the course of musical history. At the dawn of 2010, the band,¬†Chris Cornell, Matt Cameron,¬†Kim Thayil¬†and¬†Ben Shepherd, announced a new beginning.
In the last two years since Soundgarden has reunited, they have headlined festivals, toured the world and released their first retrospective titled¬†Telephantasm¬†which included the previously unreleased song, “Black Rain” and their first live album,¬†Live on I-5. The press has exalted their return to the stage and the music scene.
Rolling Stone called their headline performance at Lollapalooza “an epic set … a blueprint of the¬†Seattle¬†sound,” where the Chicago Tribune hailed them as “one of the last great hard-rock bands to emerge in the last 25 years.” ¬†The band are currently in the studio in¬†Seattle¬†writing and recording their first LP in over 15 years, which is set for release in 2012.
