Pearl Jam have announced details about their forthcoming album, Backspacer. The album will be out September 20 available online, Pearljam.com and Target chain stores. The first single from the record, "The Fixer" is set to hit radio soon. Pearl Jam debuted a new Backspacer tune, "Got Some," on the very first episode of Conan O'Brien taking over The Tonight Show earlier this summer.
It seems a Soundgarden reunion may happen, well sort of. Former Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell spoke to The Washington Post recently about getting back with his old band mates. Cornell told The Post “You never know.” The famed singer and solo artist seems to be very open to the idea after his former band mates did an impromptu reunion sans Cornell last March in Seattle. Cornell then explained to Rolling Stone “I never wanted to be one of those people who tries to predict the future. I don’t want to know what I will be doing two years, five years from now. I want to be open to anything, but nothing has changed in terms of our attitude toward it. It takes somebody to really stand up and say, ‘We should do this, we have to go do this, let’s go do this,’ and so far, no one has raised their hand to do that. Still, it’s not impossible.”
Also speaking to Rolling Stone recently was Incubus front man Brandon Boyd. Boyd gives a great article about the band prepping for a small summer tour and putting together the band's new "Best Of" set Monuments and Melodies. Take a look at the article HERE.
