Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil told The Pulse of Radio that Ultramega OK, their 1988 debut album and first to get a Grammy nomination, may be getting remixed and reissued.
Said Thayil on the project:
“Last year, Jack Endino and I spent a number of weeks remixing ‘Ultramega OK’ and we’re gonna search for a label — it’s no longer on SST — and put it out with a beautiful, heavier, warmer mix from Jack Endino, which is something we always felt we had to correct about that release.”
The band is not sitting still; a new album could be in the works in 2015, and the upcoming release of Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path, a three CD set of rarities and un-released tracks. You can listen to “Twin Tower” and “Storm,” two previously unreleased tracks, before it comes out November 24th.
