Seattle-based alternative rock band Soundgarden have announced they will release a brand new repackaged edition of their critically acclaimed album, “King Animal Plus” (Seven Four Entertainment/Republic, 2012).
The new record will be out on 2 September 2013 and features five exclusive live tracks recorded at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, and one acoustic song recorded at radio station 89X CIMX in Detroit.
“King Animal Plus”, the band’s sixth studio album and the first one in 15 years, was released in November last year. The repackaged edition is already available as an exclusive pre-order bundle from Wednesday 22 May.
The legendary band, with over 21 million records sold worldwide and two Grammy awards to their name, have also confirmed a set of European dates for this Autumn to accompany the re-release of “KAP”.
