Published Jun 23, 2009&newsitemIAs we told you back in March, legendary grungers Soundgarden mostly reunited for a one-off show at Seattle's Crocodile Café. Three-quarters of the band were there, minus their leader Chris Cornell. But now there's real reason to get your flannels in a knot: the rumour mill continues to spin that Cornell will be joining his buds for a full-on reunion.
In a recent interview with Kerrang! [via TwentyFourBit], Brent Smith of the band Shinedown dropped hints that he's heard the news, saying, "There's talk of a reuniting of Soundgarden in the States soon. I know actually someone specific who told me that, who is actually specifically in their organization. Kinda told me that they're talking about it."
So it may not be coming from Cornell's crooning, gravelly throat, but the news does support other recent rumours. Blabbermouth recently mentioned that The Pulse of Radio have reported that an inside source said a full reunion tour with all original Soundgarden members is being planned for 2010.
With all this '90s nostalgia creeping up everywhere, it's bizarre to think that the '00s reunion tours are just around the corner.
UPDATE: According to Soundgarden bassist Ben Shepherd [via Idolator], Smith "should go fuck himself" because dude doesn't know what he's talking about.
