Soundgarden To Play Intimate London Shepherds Bush Empire Show In November

Exactly 18 years since they became the first band ever to play at London’s O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, Soundgarden are to return to the historic venue for an intimate live show on November 9th. This intimate show will also include the first ever UK performances of songs from their highly anticipated new album.

ImageOn November 12th Soundgarden are set to release ‘King Animal’, their first studio album in over 15 years. A UK Super Deluxe edition of the record with five added tracks, is available to pre-order from Soundgarden’s UK store here. Fans who pre-order this edition before midnight on October 22nd will automatically be entered into an exclusive ticket pre-sale for the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire show. This will run between 10am on 24th October and 09:59am on 26th October and tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis. See full details, terms and conditions here.

Produced with longtime Soundgarden friend and producer Adam Kasper (Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Pearl Jam) and recorded at Studio X in Seattle, ‘King Animal’ follows the musical evolution of one of the world’s most ground-breaking bands and is among the most eagerly awaited records of 2012.

As one of the forefathers of the legendary Seattle alternative rock scene in the 90s, Soundgarden, along with their contemporaries, pioneered a new musical movement which became a global phenomenon.

Following two Grammy Award wins, seven overall nominations and over 21 million records sold worldwide, in 2010 the band announced a new beginning. They released their first retrospective album, ‘Telephantasm’, followed by their first live album, ‘Live on I-5’ before penning the end title song, ‘Live to Rise’, for the feature film The Avengers. This summer they returned to UK soil to headline Hard Rock Calling and perform at Download Festival.

The new album marks the first collection of new songs by the band since the 1990s and the start of an incredibly exciting new chapter for a band that has always re-written the rulebooks.

The band are revealing snippets of new songs alongside commentary on the new record via their YouTube channel.

'King Animal' tracklisting is as follows:

1. Been Away Too Long
2. Non-State Actor
3. By Crooked Steps
4. A Thousand Days Before
5. Blood On The Valley Floor
6. Bones of Birds
7. Taree
8. Attrition
9. Black Saturday
10. Halfway There
11. Worse Dreams
12. Eyelid’s Mouth
13. Rowing
