A "sneak peek" at the video for SOUNDGARDEN's newly released track "Black Rain" is available below. The song, which is taken from the "Badmotorfinger" recording sessions, comes off SOUNDGARDEN's first collection of music since 1996, "Telephantasm", which is scheduled for release on September 28 in the U.S. and September 27 internationally.
The band will partner with innovative gaming publisher Activision to release the album on September 28 via A&M/UMe inside one million copies of the new videogame Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. This release marks the first time a music album will be simultaneously released and bundled with a video game launch. Additionally, fans will get full access to the band's new album as downloadable content for Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. The 12-song disc will then be available on October 5 at all music retail outlets and on the band's web site.
On September 28, A&M/UMe will release three expanded versions of "Telephantasm" which will include a double-disc with 12 additional tracks, five of which are previously unreleased, and SOUNDGARDEN's first-ever DVD, featuring 20 videos, 13 of which have never been released, a deluxe three-LP vinyl edition and an individually numbered super deluxe collector's edition. The super deluxe collector's edition will be available for a limited time and will include two CDs, the limited-edition DVD, three heavy vinyl discs, a collectible poster, lithos, and much more. These three expanded versions will be available at all music retail outlets and on the band's web site.
