Soundgarden to Perform ‘Superunknown’ In Its Entirety for the First Time Ever
By Shannon Carlin
In honor of the 20th anniversary of their fourth album, Superunknown, Soundgarden have announced they will perform the album in full for the first time ever next month.
The band’s performance will take place on March 13 during the iTunes Festival in Austin, TX. This American offshoot from last year’s festival, which took place in England, will happen during South by Southwest from March 11 to March 13.
It was also announced earlier this week that Chris Cornell and co. will celebrate their fourth album’s milestone with not one, but two special edition releases. Both set to drop June 3.
The album’s deluxe edition will feature the remastered album along with a second disc of demos, rehearsals and B-sides. The “super deluxe edition” will span 5 CDs and will contain the remastered album, additional demos, rehearsals and B-sides. The fifth disc is for hard-core audio files, it’s the album mixed in Blu-ray Audio 5.1 Surround Sound. And if you’re still loyal to vinyl, there’s also going to be a 2-LP gatefold of the original 16 vinyl tracks remastered on 200-gram vinyl.
