April 12, 2022
SOUNDGARDEN guitarist Kim Thayil, NIRVANA bassist Krist Novoselic and SOUNDGARDEN and PEARL JAM drummer Matt Cameron have joined forces in a new band called 3RD SECRET. The group, whose lineup is rounded out by Bubba Dupree, guitarist for D.C. hardcore outfit VOID and alt-metal supergroup HATER (also featuring Cameron),and vocalists Jennifer Johnson and Jillian Raye (Novoselic's bandmate in GIANTS IN THE TREES),surprised-released its self-titled debut album, recorded and mixed by famed Seattle producer Jack Endino, on Monday (April 11).
Novoselic hinted at 3RD SECRET's existence in February, writing in a since-deleted tweet: "I am really busy trying to finish a record. In the middle of some hangups — looking for a mid-March release. But it's a secret, so don't tell anybody!"
"3rd Secret" track listing:
01. Rhythm Of The Ride 02. I Choose Me 03. Last Day Of August 04. Winter Solstice 05. Lies Fade Away 06. Live Without You 07. Right Stuff 08. Dead Sea 09. Diamond In The Cold 10. Somewhere In Time 11. The Yellow Dress
3RD SECRET recently played a secret show at Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture. A photo of the performance is available on the band's web site.
3RD SECRET marks Cameron and Thayil's first full-album collaboration following the 2017 death of SOUNDGARDEN singer Chris Cornell.
Thayil recently expressed his hope that he would re-team with his former bandmates on a new project. "I think the three of us have an interest in doing new things," he said of Cameron and SOUNDGARDEN bassist Ben Shepherd. "We certainly like working together."
