Marvel Music / Hollywood Records announce the return of Soundgarden with the release of the band’s first new song in 15 years, ‘Live to Rise’. The song will be featured in the end credits to this year’s highly anticipated movie, ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’. ‘Live to Rise’ is included on ‘Avengers Assemble’, a 14-track compilation of music from and inspired by the film. ‘Avengers Assemble’ will be released on April 23rd, 2012.
“We’ve been hard at work on our new album, which will come out this Fall. When the opportunity arose to write an original song for ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’ film, we thought it could be a cool match. We are excited to release our new song ‘Live To Rise,’ which is also the only new song in the film. Here’s a taste. Loudest of Love.”
The film is in cinemas in the UK from April 26th, 2012.
