SOUNDGARDEN: Video Footage Of 'Telephantasm' Super Deluxe Collector's Edition Content Unveiling

SOUNDGARDEN released its first collection of music since 1996, "Telephantasm", on September 28 in the U.S. and September 27 internationally. This career-spanning retrospective album includes never-before-heard unreleased track "Black Rain", taken from the "Badmotorfinger" recording sessions.

The super deluxe collector's edition of "Telephantasm" is available for a limited time and includes two CDs, the limited-edition DVD, three heavy vinyl discs, a collectible poster, lithos, and much more.

Video footage of the "Telephantasm" super deluxe collector's edition content unveiling can be viewed below. It includes the following:

* 12.5"x12.5"x1.5" hinged double slipcase box set

SOUNDGARDEN has partnered with innovative gaming publisher Activision to release the album 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 was simultaneously released and bundled with a video game launch. Additionally, fans 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 released three expanded versions of "Telephantasm" which 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.
