Soundgarden, Them Crooked Vultures & OFF! Members Unite In New Project


Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd have a new project in the works. Joining them in the as-yet unnamed venture are Alain Johannes of Them Crooked Vultures/Queens Of The Stone Age/Eleven fame and Dimitri Coats of OFF!. Coats told Billboard of the material’s sound:

“[It’s} really heavy and doomy, but it’s really all across the board. It’s a little bit more laid-back than I would’ve thought, but in a good way. There’s some kind of heavy, bluesy moments and then there’s some really beautiful stuff, too. It’s a little bit like ‘Superunknown,’ that kind of era of Soundgarden, mixed with Alain‘s kind of Stevie Wonder vibe. And they call me the secret weapon; I’m a little bit rough around the edges, but I have a lot of good ideas.”

Some recording sessions took place this past April and May with some songs likely to show up later in the year.
