Soundgarden is releasing their first ever collection of live tracks, from a 1996 west coast tour.  The album wont be available until March 22nd, but Q103 has it  posted for you to hear now.

Titled Live on I-5 – a reference to the Interstate 5 which runs up and down the West Coast-captures the band at the height of their recording and touring career.

Soundgarden rented a mobile 24 track machine/truck and recorded the shows on 2" tape. The band had always intended to release it as a live record soon after the tour,  they disbanded and the tapes were left in the closet of Studio X in Seattle (now called Bad Animals) to gather dust until now.
