In other Soundgarden news, the band posted the following on Facebook recently regarding their documentary:
It’s happening – the Soundgarden story will soon be the subject of a feature documentary film. And you can help. As we dig deep into our vaults, we ask that you, the fans, dig into yours.
Personal photographs, bootleg video and audio, collected concert posters – your rare piece of music history could be the missing piece we need.
If you want a chance for your memento to become a permanent part of Soundgarden history, send a description of what you’ve got to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Soundgarden Fan Submission”.
The Soundgarden film is being produced by Banger Films, makers of the essential heavy metal documentary Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey (2006), SXSW Audience Award and Juno-winning Iron Maiden: Flight 666 (2009), Grammy-nominated and Tribeca Audience Award-winning Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage (2010), the “doc opera” Super Duper Alice Cooper (2014), as well as the biggest-ever TV series on metal and hard rock, Metal Evolution (2011).
Kim Thayil told AlternativeNation.net about the documentary earlier this year, “I haven’t seen any footage yet, but we have a general idea, an outline. We imagine it’ll be chronological, and maybe a bit autobiographical (chuckles). I don’t know, I haven’t seen anything yet, but I imagine it’ll be very good. The guys who I understand are working on it are fantastic, they make some great documentaries.”
