We’ve been waiting a long time for a new Soundgarden album, and that wait is almost over. This past spring the band revealed that they would have a new album out in the fall, and we got a taste of new music on The Avengers soundtrack. Now they’ve announced that the name of their new album will be King Animal, and it’s set for release on November 13th.

Along with their announcement comes a teaser video, starting with images of the band in the studio and wrapping with the band on stage. The song in the video is called “Worse Dreams,” and if the rest of the album lives up to it, we’re in for a real treat. It sounds like what you’d expect from Soundgarden, and they’re tearing it up.

Some may question the length of time between albums being that they haven’t released a new record in 16 years, but I don’t think that span of time will hurt the them. If anything, they still have a loyal fan base from the past, but now they’re in a position to gain a whole new audience with the younger crowd that don’t have that past with the band.

What do you think? Are you excited about the new record?
