Soundgarden‘s upcoming appearance on the PBS concert program Live From The Artist’s Den will premiere in July, according to Loudwire. Although an exact broadcast date has not been set, a teaser for the show’s sixth season indicates that a slew of new concerts from Soundgarden, Mumford & Sons, the Killers and others will all make their debut that month. A crew from the Emmy-nominated series filmed Soundgarden’s February 17th concert at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, the last gig of a three-night stand there, with that night’s set featuring 28 songs from all eras of the band’s career.

  • The band will begin a new leg of North American tour dates this Friday (May 3rd) in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The trek will include stops at radio festivals and events like Rock On The Range.
  • Some of the shows will be with fellow Seattle legends Alice In Chains and Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil told us that the two bands remain friends: [“We still speak speak with those guys fairly regularly and see them fairly regularly. Jerry (Cantrell, Alice In Chains guitarist) is back in Seattle, he lives near Sean (Kinney, Alice drummer), and Mike (Inez, bassist) just got married. I was invited to his wedding, it was last spring or two springs ago, and the only reason why I couldn’t attend was I think we were on the road.”] SOUNDCUE (:16 OC: . . . on the road.)
  • Soundgarden has been touring in support of King Animal, its first album of new material since 1996.
  • The disc was released last November and features the singles “Been Away Too Long” and “By Crooked Steps.” The video for the latter song has been directed by Dave Grohl.
