In 2019, Soundgarden will celebrate their 35th anniversary. To commemorate the landmark year, A&M/UMe is partnering with The Sound of Vinyl to launch an Album of the Month series cataloging the groundbreaking alt-rock act’s storied career and influence.
Each month starting in April, the label will issue a different Soundgarden LP on limited-edition coloured vinyl. First up is Superunknown, the 1994 Grammy-winning studio release that effectively launched the group into stardom with hits like “Black Hole Sun”, “Fell on Black Days”, and others. In honour of its 25th anniversary today, the upcoming record will be pressed on 180-gram translucent red and gold vinyl.
In addition to Superunknown, the series will feature 1989’s Louder Than LoveLouder Than Love, 1991’s Badmotorfinger, 1996’s Down on the Upside, and 2012’s King Animal. While individual albums are available for purchase, the complete anniversary package will also be released in a discounted bundle, which features an exclusive lithograph designed and signed by the group’s longtime creative director Josh Graham.
