If you (like most of America) caught THE AVENGERS today in theaters then you no doubt heard this rockin’ tune play over the end credits sequence. The track is called “Live To Rise” and it’s the first brand new Soundgarden song since the grunge powerhouse disbanded back in 1995. The band has been touring since getting back together for the last year or two now and finally went back into the studio to start working on a proper new album. While it’s undetermined if this track will end up on their eagerly awaited full length, for now it appears on THE AVENGERS soundtrack and now the band have released an official music video embedded below.
It’s a pretty good catchy tune; very reminiscent of Chris Cornell’s first solo record “Euphoric Morning”, which I love. Let’s hope this is just a warm up for more rockin’ tunes to come.
THE AVENGERS is now playing and stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson and Gwyneth Paltrow. Joss Whedon writes and directs.
