SOUNDGARDEN To Release 'Telephantasm' Retrospective Set

The reunited SOUNDGARDEN will release a retrospective set, "Telephantasm", on September 28. The band states, "It includes songs from all of our albums and EPs, including 'Black Rain', an unreleased track from the 'Badmotorfinger' sessions. Plus, we are releasing our first-ever DVD which will include never-before-seen videos, and much more.

"We have partnered with 'Guitar Hero 6' to launch 'Telephantasm' simultaneously with the launch of the new game. Which means if you buy 'Guitar Hero 6' for the week of September 28, you get a copy of 'Telephantasm' as well. Of course, there will be vinyl, collectors' editions, deluxe packages and more."

SOUNDGARDEN has announced a new show, its third since coming back together earlier this year. The band will play on Thursday, August 5 at the intimate Vic Theatre in Chicago, just three days before it headlines the third day of the Lollapalooza festival in the Windy City's Grant Park on Sunday, August 8. Fans have a chance to buy tickets to the club gig by signing up as a member of Soundgarden World, the band's official web site. Selected members will get an email with a link to purchase a pair of tickets, all of which will be given out on the day of the show at the box office.

You must be 18 to attend the show. All ticket sales will be final, with no exchange, refund or transfer of names.

Fans must show government-issued photo ID to collect their paperless tickets, with no exceptions.

SOUNDGARDEN performed its first show since 1997 on April 16 at the Showbox in Seattle under the name NUDEDRAGONS (anagram of SOUNDGARDEN).

The rest of SOUNDGARDEN's plans, including more shows or a full tour, remain in the dark right now. Drummer Matt Cameron also has commitments with PEARL JAM, of which he has been a member for 12 years.

Cornell recorded three albums with AUDIOSLAVE and three records on his own since SOUNDGARDEN disbanded, but his last solo effort, 2009's "Scream", was blasted by critics and fans for its urban pop production and bombed saleswise.

The other two members of the band, guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Ben Shepherd, have kept lower profiles, although they and Cameron jammed together last year at a Seattle club.
