In addition to getting ready for the tour, the band has been working on new material for the follow-up to 2012’s King Animal.

“Over the past year we’ve gotten together three to four times,” Thayil told with Loudwire“It would have to be in breaks with the Pearl Jam and Chris’ solo touring schedule. So I think now that that slate is cleared, I think in 2017 we’ll find more time for us to get together and write and then hit the studio. Given the writing and recording part, you’d hope to have something out in 2017.”

Thayil stopped short of promising a release this year, however, stating that the band works differently these days than they used to. But if all goes well, he figures there could be a new Soundgarden album ready in time for the gift-giving season. ” The whole process is a little different now because of other commitments. We could take breaks in between and do some touring or—it’s hard to tell. I think King Animal transpired over a period of… Trying to think, over a year or so? It’s hard to tell, but I think we could probably aim for the fall of 2017.”
