Soundgarden in Atlantic City in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Soundgarden

As mentioned, Soundgarden are playing three intimate North American shows this year, including one in NYC on November 13 at Irving Plaza. Presale tickets for that show go on sale today (11/8) at noon. You need a password (we think it might be "SPOONMAN"). General on-sale starts Friday (11/9) at noon.

The day before that show, Soundgarden will perform for 'Live on Letterman' at Ed Sullivan Theater (11/12) at 8 PM. That performance, which is about 45 minutes long as opposed to the one or two songs they'll perform on The Late Show with David Letterman that same night, will air live on CBS.com and VEVO. We're also giving away two pair of tickets to attend the show. More details on that below.

Soundgarden will release King Animal on November 13, but you can stream the entire thing now ahead of its release date on iTunes. The band also performed on Later... with Jools Holland on Tuesday (11/6). They played King Animal single "Been Away Too Long," plus the old favorite, "Rusty Cage." You can watch videos of both performances below.

For a chance at winning tickets to see Soundgarden Live on Letterman at Ed Sullivan Theater on Monday (11/12): either tweet something that includes both @BrooklynVegan AND "SOUNDGARDEN" in the tweet, or send an email to BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM with the subject line "SOUNDGARDEN". Include your first and last name in the email. We'll pick a winner at random and contact them with more details. If you enter by email, it will not be shared with anyone else. Good luck!

People paid money And pre ordered the album for the password, what gives you the right to give it away?

And no, you don't have the correct one.

seriously. I seriously fucking doubt more than 20 were available.

password was kinganimal....real toughy..but yeah sold out before they went on sale. Must have been like 3 tickets avail...but that's probably the amount of presale albums sold so ME should be happy.

on a side note, those security checks are getting retardedly stupid, impossible to read....and they still don't prevent scalpers for getting everything.

May have taken a minute for tickets to feed into the system. Started out with nothing and kept trying and got lucky and got a single. Keep trying.

11:54 ME is one of BV first ever readers and followers, but is that really matter?

11:58 You're right, but that's how they force you to buy albums these days, by promising you a presale code...

12:04 Yes, i am very happy. Always happy.

Did you also notice it feels like he is straining his voice on every single song nowadays or is that just me?

^^^ Yeah I did.

That's gotta be tough to write decent melodies with an entirely different range now.

All these 'best Soundgarden album ever' posts have to be plants. Those first two singles were fucking TERRIBLE.

I got tickets to live at letterman!
I entered once and they emailed back within 2 days... as far as the pre sale today that sucks and the fact that stubhub has 115 tickets available I don't understand.
I am hoping tomorrow I get tickets but who knows... then i guess i might be stub hubbing
