Fans of Seattle grunge, rejoice, for your gravelly voiced heroes have returned. Soundgarden will release its first album in 15 years this November, and as is required by music-industry law, the band has released the first single in advance. “Been Away Too Long” is, as the accompanying press release puts it, “a celebration of urban angst and rock.” While King Animal, the band’s new record, should satiate fans’ hunger for Soundgarden’s “revolutionary impact” (again, quoting the press release), “Been Away To Long” provides an acidic taste of what’s in store.
King Animal comes out November 13 and is available for pre-order now.
