According to posts on Chris Cornell’s Twitter and MySpace pages, it appears that he and his former Soundgarden band mates will reunite after a 12 year hiatus. “The 12 year break is over & school is back in session. Sign up now,” Cornell’s post read. “Knights of the Soundtable ride again!” The post also mentions the website http://www.soundgardenworld.com/ which appears to be the future homepage for the band. Mysteriously no one else from Soundgarden has come out to confirm the rumors, or with any comments. An official announcement with more details is expected soon. One of the prominent grunge acts coming out of Seattle in the early 90’s, Soundgarden went on to sell eight million records in the United States, and an estimated twenty million worldwide. In the spring of 1997 the band announced their break up due to internal strife over its creative direction. Cornell’s posts confirming the band’s reunion came at approximately midnight eastern time on January 1st, 2010.
