After making an appearance at Neil Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit this past weekend where Chris Cornell joined Pearl Jam as they covered Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike,”¬†Soundgarden have dropped a new song.

The song is titled “Storm” and is their first new piece of music since the released of 2012’s King Animal.

The song comes as a surprise for fans of the grunge band especially because there was no indication that any new music was on the way or being recorded for that matter, even if they had recently wrapped up a tour.

But like Consequence of Sound pointed out that the song might be one of the unreleased tracks featured on “long-in-the-works” B-side and rarities compilation; a song titled “The Storm” is listed in the tracklisting for the compilation

Then again, only Soundgarden will know the origins of the dark and brooding new song. Listen to it below.

Acoustic Basement Head Shocked at Warped Tour

It’s been known to rain and pour during Warped Tour in selected cities, but yesterday afternoon, the long running music festival met unexpected weather conditions when they arrived in West Palm Beach, Florida which resulted in not only a temporary cancellation for several hours, but also the venue lost electricity.

The worst part of the day was that the man behind the recently popular Acoustic Basement as well as Therefore I Am, Brian Marquis, was injured during the torrential storm that struck the festival. It was unclear whether he had been electrocuted or if he was struck by lightning at that time.

Earlier today, Marquis released a short message where he reveals that he is fine after what occurred at yesterday’s Warped Tour stop as well as picture of him in what looks to be a hospital.

“I am alive and relatively okay. I fought a little lightning and won. Thank you for all the love and concern. I am so grateful for you all.”

After the catastrophe had happened, former The Voice contestant and current Warped Tour performer, Juliet Simms, released a tweet that started everyone’s concern about what had transpired at that moment.

Edit: We were at yesterday’s Warped Tour and had to endure almost two hours (three if you include the drive to West Palm) in the car while the storm passed. The venue was flood to the point that some audience members said that they went swimming int he water.

Warped Tour officials let fans know that if they chose to leave the show early, their tickets would be honored at today’s show in Orlando as well as signing tickets as well.¬†
