With Soundgarden‘s forthcoming new LP looming on the horizon, the band are looking back with a special box set re-release of part of their catalog: Soundgarden – Classic Albums Selection.
As XFM reports, the box set will include the following records: 1989’s Louder Than Love, 1991’s Badmotorfinger, 1994’s Superunknown, 1996′s Down on the Upside, and the 2011-released Live On I-5. All the albums will come packaged in mini-LP gatefold wallets, with their accompanying booklets. In addition, the release will feature new artwork from Josh Graham, who had already worked with the band in the past, via the weird-ass Telephantasm cover.
Soundgarden – Classic Albums Collection will be available on May 21st. Soungarden’s new song Live to Rise debuted earlier this month, but didn’t exactly impress us. Starting in May, the band will tour across Europe.
