Soundgarden, along with The Chris Cornell Estate, are partnering with IMAX to bring Soundgarden: Live from the Artists Den – The IMAX Experience — a theatrical experience capturing the band’s famed February 2013 performance at The Wiltern in Los Angeles — exclusively to IMAX theatres in North America for special encore showtimes on Sunday, 25 August.
The widely-acclaimed concert movie will be shown in selected theatres across North America and Canada, and US fans can visit the official IMAX website to check where Live At The Artists Den will be screened locally.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, Soundgarden’s Live From The Artists Den was released on 26 July through UMe. The 29 song-show comprising almost two and a half hours, encompasses the band’s rich musical legacy, spanning their early years with ‘Hunted Down,’ through their monumental albums Louder Than Love, Badmotorfinger and Superunknown respectively with ‘Outshined’ and ‘Black Hole Sun,’ and to their final record, with nearly every song from King Animal including ‘By Crooked Steps’ and ‘Been Away Too Long.’
Live From The Artists Den features 21 songs never before released on a Soundgarden concert film, including 17 making their first appearance on a live album, and highlighted by ‘Blind Dogs,’ which the band performed on stage for the first time ever at the Wiltern show.
Soundgarden: Live from the Artists Den is available in a variety of formats. The limited-edition Super Deluxe box will feature the complete 29-song concert film in 5.1 surround sound and stereo on Blu-ray, and more than 30 minutes of bonus interviews with the band, in addition to four black 180-gram audiophile LPs, 2CDs, a 40-page photo book, four band member lithos, and replica artist all-access pass and ticket stub from the original show.
Speaking about Live from the Artists Den, Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil said, “We were very proud and excited to document the performance of our new material from King Animal, and to celebrate with each other and our fans.”
In advance of the album’s release in July, Artists Den presented a series of Soundgarden: Live from the Artists Den immersive events of the full 29 song show in New York and Los Angeles, as well as an additional screening in Seattle. The stops in New York and Los Angeles each showcased 12 HD camera angles customized for an immersive multi-screen viewing experience. A live remix of the original multi-track 48-channel audio in L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound, a ground-breaking ultra-high resolution audio technology from L-Acoustics, offering fans the thrill of connecting with the band’s repertoire in vivid fidelity.
