Soundgarden have premiered a new clip from the band’s upcoming Live From the Artists Den concert film and live album. The new video features the Seattle rock legends playing the Badmotorfinger song ‘New Damage’ and you can check it out below.
On February 17, 2013, Soundgarden concluded a sold-out U.S. winter tour in support of King Animal, the band’s first studio album in over sixteen years, with a special Live From The Artists Den taping at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.
Soundgarden mixed new songs with classic radio hits and rarities performed live for the first time in front of a rapturous crowd. The concert has become the all-time most requested Soundgarden live show for an official release.
The 29-song, nearly two-and-a-half-hour show encompasses the band’s rich musical legacy, spanning their early years with ‘Hunted Down’, through their legend-enshrining albums Badmotorfinger and Superunknown, respectively, with ‘New Damage’, ‘Outshined’ and ‘Black Hole Sun’, and to their final record, with nearly every song from King Animal.
As uDiscover music previously reported, 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. The album be released in a variety of formats, including a four-LP, two-CD super deluxe box set, on 26 July
The almost three-hour concert will also screen in IMAX theatres for one night only on 1 July. IMAX has digitally re-mastered the 21-song performance for a world premiere in more than 30 markets.
“We were very proud and excited to document the performance of our new material from King Animal,” explains Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil, “and to celebrate with each other and our fans.”
On behalf of the Chris Cornell Estate, Vicky Cornell said: “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.”
