Contest: Win A Copy Of The New Live Soundgarden Album “Live On I5”

March 22, 2011 by  
Filed under Contests, Daily Music News

Soundgarden’s new live album LIVE ON I5 drops today and we have two copies to give away!  It’s the band’s first ever live album and comes after a 13 year break. The collection captures the rawness, spontaneity and magic that happens at live gigs between Soundgarden and their audiences.  It cements the band’s place in rock history and shows why their appeal is as strong and as timeless as ever.  

Want it?  Send an email to staff@theywillrockyou.com with the subject “Soundgarden“.  Please include your name, email address and shipping address.  Two winners will be selected at random on Friday March 25th.  (Contest is only open to US Residents).

More on Live on I5 – a reference to the Interstate 5 which runs up and down the West Coast-  the new collection compiles live tracks from a 1996 run by the band and captures the band at the height of their recording and touring career.  This carefully selected compilation includes fan favorites like “Spoonman”, “Rusty Cage”, “Burden In My Hand,” and “Black Hole Sun” (performed by Chris Cornell solo), as well what insiders are calling the definitive live performance of “Jesus Christ Pose.”  As a bonus, the disc includes two brilliantly inspired covers:  The Beatles’ “Helter Skelter” and The Stooges’ anarchic proto-punk classic, “Search & Destroy.” The band took out recording engineer, Adam Kasper with them on the West Coast leg of this tour- the first time they ever recorded any live shows. They rented a mobile 24 track machine/truck and recorded the gigs on 2″ tape. Soundgarden had always intended to release it as a live record soon after the tour, but alas, they disbanded and the tapes were left in the closet of Studio X in Seattle (now called Bad Animals) to gather dust until now.
