This year marks Soundgarden’s 35th anniversary and to celebrate, the band is releasing a new live album and concert film.
The footage is taken from their February 17th, 2013, Live at the Artists Den taping at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, California that wrapped up the band’s King Animal winter tour. The nearly two and a half hour set spans their career featuring 29 songs, including hit singles like “Black Hole Sun” and “Spoonman” along with “Been Away Too Long,” and “By Crooked Steps” from their 2012 LP. It also includes “Blind Dogs,” which the band performed live for the first time and is one of 21 songs that have never been featured in a Soundgarden concert film.
Live From the Artists Den comes out July 26th and will be released in various formats, including a limited edition Super Deluxe box set with four LPs, two CDs, a photo book, and the concert on Blu-Ray, which includes bonus band interviews. It will also be available on a 4-LP colored vinyl, 4-LP black vinyl, Blu-Ray, and a 2-CD set. These are currently available to pre-order now. The digital live album and video versions can be pre-ordered starting May 31st. Check out the trailer below.
Ahead of its release, a number of immersive screenings of the concert film will be held in LA, New York, and Seattle. Tickets go on sale later today. Find more information about the screenings here.
