For The Animals
Soundgarden have announced both the formats and the pre-order bonuses for their new album, King Animal, which will be available on November 13. It is their first album in sixteen years.
Fans who pre-order the album on the band’s website, http://soundgardenworld.com, before 11:59 PST on November 7 will get a password to the pre-sale for three small shows the band are doing at Irving Plaza in New York City on November 13, The Phoenix Theater in Toronto on November 16, and the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles on November 27. Though be warned: getting a password does not guarantee you’ll get a ticket, since the shows are first-come, first-serve.
King Animal will also be available on CD, a deluxe CD with demos of three songs (“Worse Dreams,” “Black Saturday,” “By Crooked Streets”), 180 gram vinyl (which comes with MP3s of the album), digital (which also includes the three demos), an exclusive iTunes version (which includes the three demos plus a fourth for “Halfway There”), and a boxed set that includes the deluxe CD, vinyl, and digital versions, a DVD of the band playing in Hyde Park, and 5 lithographs.
Pre-ordering any version also gets you an instant download of the song “Been Away Too Long.”
The CD will be available for $12.99, the deluxe CD is $15.99, the digital and iTunes versions are $14.99, the vinyl version is available for $24.99, while the boxed set will be $99.99.
There’s also a King Animal t-shirt available for $24.99, though if you get something else as well, the shirt is just $20.00.
