"If anything it has helped us. Certainly in writing and recording the new album, it feels very fresh. Everyone is included and an equal part of it musically and it feels very natural and expressive, and we're going in new directions we never did before." Rocker Chris Cornell credits Soundgarden's break-up in 2000 for giving the reunited band's new music a "fresh" sound. The group released Live To Rise, its first song in over 15 years, last week (05Apr12).
