SOUNDGARDEN: Video Footage Of 107.7 THE END Interview Posted Online

On Wednesday, September 8, Harms of the Seattle, Washington radio station 107.7 The End conducted an interview with SOUNDGARDEN members Matt Cameron (drums), Ben Shepard (bass) and Kim Thayil (guitar). You can now watch parts of the chat below.

As previously reported, SOUNDGARDEN played a secret show on the Paramount Studios backlot in Los Angeles on Monday night (September 27). The occasion was a launch event for Activision's new Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock game, which was released Tuesday (September 28) and includes a copy of the single-disc edition of the SOUNDGARDEN retrospective "Telephantasm" inside the first one million copies.

The Paramount lot was transformed into a New York City block party, complete with a replica of historic downtown music venue CBGB, for an evening which culminated with SOUNDGARDEN's eight-song set. The band performed "Hands All Over", "Spoonman", "Rusty Cage", "Outshined", "Burden In My Hand", "Black Hole Sun", "Black Rain" and "Gun".

SOUNDGARDEN reunited earlier this year and has played just a handful of gigs before issuing this collection. But singer Chris Cornell told The Pulse of Radio there's much more in store from the group. "We didn't just reform to play one show and put out a best-of and walk away," he said. "That's not what's happening. But the other thing we're not doing is, we didn't reform to go do the 'cash in on it' tour, and make maybe an obligatory, half-hearted album and release it and then fade because we hate each other (laughs). That's not gonna happen either."

"Telephantasm" is SOUNDGARDEN's first release in 13 years and contains an assortment of studio cuts, radio hits, rare live tracks and alternate takes

In addition to the 12-song single disc version, it arrives in three expanded editions, including a double-disc set containing 12 additional tracks — five of which have never been released — and SOUNDGARDEN's first DVD. The DVD contains 20 music videos, 13 of which have never been released.

The other two expanded editions are a deluxe three-LP vinyl edition and a Super Deluxe Collector's Edition that combines the CDs, DVD and vinyl with a poster and other goodies.
