The band continues to fete the 20th anniversary of "Superunknown" and looks ahead to marking 25 years since "Badmotorfinger" … "It definitely deserves the same kind of treatment we're giving ('Superunknown')," guitarist Kim Thayil says
With its 20th anniversary editions of the landmark "Superunknown" album about to come out, Soundgarden is eyeballing some more forays into its vaults. Guitarist Kim Thayil tells Billboard that a long-promised compilation of B-sides and non-album tracks, containing some of the bonus tracks featured on the new "Superunknown" packages, will become a reality in the hopefully near future.
"I've been talking about that since the mid-90s -- people still ask me about it in the (online) forums," Thayil notes. "But then the band broke up, and I thought when we got back together four and a half years ago we'd start on that project. But first we did the retrospective best-of (2010's "Telephantasm") and then a live record (2011's "Live on I-5") and then a new album (2012's 'King Animal') came out, and these tours came up and now 'Superunknown's' 20. But the B-sides and all that stuff will be compiled in the future into a separate, stand-alone record."
