Soundgarden ’s Screaming Life/Fopp hits stores on Tuesday, but it appears that the long-out-of-print 1990 compilation won’t be the only batch of classic tracks the guys will be delivering to their fans. Guitarist Kim Thayil says he’s still hard at work on putting together a release which will feature a collection of the group’s rare B-sides.
“It's been almost 20 years of backburner neglect,” he tells Rolling Stone . “The past four years, I've taken some action toward getting the ball rolling. Now it's just a matter of working with Jeff Fura at A&M Records and getting this thing going.” Thayil adds the group also has plans to reissue a remixed version of their debut album, 1988’s Ultramega OK , sometime in the future as well.
As for a follow-up to the band’s first new album in about 16 years, 2012’s King Animal , Thayil reveals the band is in talks about a new record, and they will look into revisiting the issue sometime “in the next two years.”
