Soundgarden have shared a new official video of them performing ‘Blind Dogs’ live for the very first time. The footage was captured at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles in 2013 and will feature on the upcoming live package Live From The Artists Den, which will arrive on 26 July through UMC/Polydor. You can check ‘Blind Dogs’ out below.
Live From The Artists Den will be released on 2CD, 4LP, limited edition 4LP, Blu-ray and as a deluxe box set, featuring the 29-track concert film, with more than 30 minutes of bonus interviews on multiple LP, CD and Blu-ray formats. The deluxe set will also feature a 40-page photo book, four band member lithos, and replica artist all-access pass and ticket stub from the original Los Angeles show.
Looking back at the performance, 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.”
Chris Cornell’s widow Vicky added: “This live show was really special, and I know how much fun Chris had that night. The idea of giving fans the opportunity to experience it in its entirety is something I’m proud to share with them.”
Later this month, Artists Den will present three Soundgarden: Live From the Artists Den immersive events in New York, Los Angeles and Seattle, which will feature the full 29-track set. The 360˚ real time mix synced to on-screen footage and further complemented by a stunning light show promises to immerse the audience in a truly unique experience, for one night only in each city. The Seattle screening will be located at The Showbox, the same site the band reunited for the first time in 2010 under the anagram ‘Nudedragons.’
The 29 song-show comprising almost two and a half hours, spans Soundgarden’s early years with ‘Hunted Down,’ through their monumental albums Badmotorfinger and Superunknown 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’, in addition to ‘Blind Dogs’. 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.
