The new, highly-anticipated Marvel movie 'The Avengers' will be in theaters May 4th. Add in a new Soundgarden song, and now the movie is more than bad-ass!  Soundgarden released a preview of their new single 'Live To Rise', which will be available on 'The Avengers' soundtrack May 1st.

Last year when Chris Cornell made his Songbook solo tour stop at the Egg in Albany, he said that Soundgarden was in the studio recording but wouldn't release any music or the album until they were good and ready. That time has come this Spring with the release of 'The Avengers'.

'The Avengers' will tell the back story of all our favorite Marvel super heroes: Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, The Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye.

Could a full blown Soundgarden tour be in the mix to support the new album? Let's hope.
