Chris Cornell talks about the new SOUNDGARDEN song

1 min read

SOUNDGARDEN frontman and guitarist Chris Cornell recently told Seattle radio station KISW that fans should not think of the band’s recently-released song“Live to Rise”, as an indication of what the rest of the group’s new record will sound like.

Cornell explained,

Some of the songs on our new album are pretty far left of center, and sort of zero in on more of a hardcore Soundgarden fan and not necessarily a family that goes to see a film like that. Although [‘Live To Rise’ is] not really what I think of as a necessarily family-friendly song, but it’s as close as we’ve ever come.

Cornell also added that “Live to Rise” wasn’t specifically based on the upcoming movie “The Avengers”, explaining:

I think a film like this appeals to little kids all the way to old people because it’s an action film, it’s comic book characters, but it’s also pretty witty dialog and accomplished actors doing it. So it had to be somewhat open to all of that. But also first and foremost it has to be a Soungarden song.
