Temple of the Dog the Seattle supergroup featuring Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, and Mike McCready and drummer Matt Cameron (who plays drums with both Soundgarden and Pearl Jam) has reunited and will tour for the first time ever since forming in 1990. The band will play five US cities in November this year - Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
The tour marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Temple of the Dog’s first and only album, a self-titled set that was released by A&M Records on April 16th 1991. “We wanted to do the one thing we never got to do play shows and see what it feels like to be the band that we walked away from 25 years ago” Cornell says of the 2016 tour.
On September 30th Universal Music will release a special Temple of the Dog 25th anniversary reissue collection of their landmark album newly mixed by Brendan O’Brien.. Over the weekend, the pre-order of the digital version of the album went live, along with a rare demo from the band.
