Chris Cornell stopped by Rolling Stone magazine recently to drop a little bomb. Soundgarden is back together and is almost finished with a new album! We optimistically saw this coming when the band announced a reunion last year with a few live shows and then released their first live album earlier this year.

Cornell made it official, telling RS, "I feel like Soundgarden can continue, and probably always should've had the attitude of being a formed, functioning band that just needed a break. We have a new album, it's mostly finished and it should be out in the spring of 2012. It really felt like we haven't missed a beat." That's got me hitchhiking on facebook!
