SOUNDGARDEN guitarist Kim Thayil has revealed that the band was working on new material before the death of frontman Chris Cornell, and that those recordings may still see the light of day.
Thayil said, “We definitely have another record in us. Stuff that's written, stuff that's demoed and recorded — certainly. All it would need is to take the audio files that are available. I'd tighten up the guitar stuff that's on there, add other stuff. We can get the producers we want to make it sound like a SOUNDGARDEN record. And yes, we can totally do that."
Thayil also talked about the possibility of SOUNDGARDEN reforming at some in the future with a new singer, either for a tour or a new record. He said: "Reasonably, you've got a big part missing. So, I think in terms of the SOUNDGARDEN catalog, that's still gonna be active as best as it can be. In terms of unreleased recordings, live material, I'm still gonna attend to that; that's my gig. I love that. Let's make records.
