SOUNDGARDEN made its first national television appearance in 13 years on November 9, when the band performed on the second episode of Conan O'Brien's new nighttime talk show on TBS, "Conan".

SOUNDGARDEN played two songs on "Conan": the recently released 1991 studio cut "Black Rain" was broadcast on the show, while the track "Hunted Down"SOUNDGARDEN's very first single, released in 1987 — was posted online only.

SOUNDGARDEN has played just a handful of gigs since reuniting in early 2010, including a headlining show at last summer's Lollapalooza festival in Chicago.

The band has yet to announce any full-length tour plans.

SOUNDGARDEN released a CD/DVD retrospective set in late September called "Telephantasm", featuring singles, album cuts, live material and the previously unavailable "Black Rain".
