[lastfm]Soundgarden[/lastfm] have revealed that they will have an unreleased song featured on the upcoming Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock game.
The band, which reunited in January and has not released a new studio album since 1996’s Down on the Upside, has given “Black Rain” to the game. This marks their first newly released song since they featured the track “Bleed Together” on their 1997 compilation A Sides.
In a September interview with Rolling Stone, Soundgarden’s [lastfm]Kim Thayil[/lastfm] explained the difficulties faced by the band in releasing new music for their fans: “A year or two after we disbanded, A&M Records disbanded – it got bought, and all of our friends there got fired. The record company dissolving and our management company dissolving put a big hit on Soundgarden’s catalog and merchandise.”
