Marvel's The Avengers is reuniting legendary Seattle grunge rockers Soundgarden for their first song in fifteen years. Live to Rise will play over the end credit sequence of Joss Whedon's Marvel superhero adventure, with Chris Cornell singing lead vocals.
The track will appear on Avengers Assemble, a compilation of songs inspired by and used in this summer's Marvel's The Avengers. The album will be in stores and available for download starting May 1st, along with the score by Alan Silvestri. Soundgarden plans to release their first album in nearly two decades later this year.
In related soundtrack news, Indian film distributors UTV Motion Pictures have teamed with Marvel Studios to produce their own unique soundtrack for Indian audiences. Instead of hearing Soundgarden wail away at Live to Rise, they will get the hugely popular international band Agnee with the song Hello Andheron, which was written by noted filmmaker Abbas Tyrewala. The band recently performed the song live for the first time with Iron Man in attendance. While we don't have footage of that, we do have the official music video. Check out Marvel's The Avengers's Hindi theme song.
