It's been 15 years since the band Soundgarden has come out with a new song, and thanks to The Avengers, they are back with a new track they created for the movie, called "Live to Rise." It actually sounds like it will be a good song, especially for those of you who are fans of the band. Here's a statement from the band:
We've been hard at work on our new album, which will come out this Fall. When the opportunity arose to write an original song for the film came our way, we thought it could be a cool match. We are excited to release our new song, which is also the only new song in the film. Here's a taste. Loudest of Love.
You can hear a little tease of the music below, so check it out and tell us what you think! Are you happy to see Soundgarden performing music together again?
I've also included a little character promo featurette for Thor and Captain America that wasn't included in yesterday's post of Avengers videos.
Here's an official press release giving us information on the soundtrack for the movie:
Marvel Music/Hollywood Records announce the return of Soundgarden with the release of the band's first song in 15 years, "Live to Rise." The song will be featured in the end credits to this year's highly anticipated movie, "Marvel's The Avengers." "Live to Rise" is included on Avengers Assemble, a 14-track compilation of music from and inspired by the film. Avengers Assemble will be released on May 1, 2012.
Soundgarden stated, "We've been hard at work on our new album, which will come out this Fall.
