Marvel Music/Hollywood Records previously announced the return of Soundgarden with the release of the band's first song in 15 years, "Live to Rise." The song will be featured in the end credits to this year's highly anticipated movie, "Marvel's The Avengers." "Live to Rise" is included on Avengers Assemble, a 14-track compilation of music from and inspired by the film. Avengers Assemble will be released today, May 1, 2012.

Soundgarden stated, "We've been hard at work on our new album, which will come out this Fall. When the opportunity arose to write an original song for 'Marvel's The Avengers' film came our way, we thought it could be a cool match. We are excited to release our new song 'Live To Rise,' which is also the only new song in the film. Here's a taste. Loudest of Love." http://youtu.be/lVWjZ6Hk9Jg

Also, The Avengers original motion picture soundtrack, with score by Oscar®-nominated and GRAMMY-winning composer Alan Silvestri ("Captain America: The First Avenger," "Forrest Gump," the "Back to the Future" trilogy) will be available at online retailers today, May 1, 2012.

With over 21 million records sold worldwide, Soundgarden redefined rock music for a whole generation and had a revolutionary impact on the course of musical history. At the dawn of 2010, the band, Chris Cornell, Matt Cameron, Kim Thayil and Ben Shepherd, announced a new beginning. In the last two years since Soundgarden has reunited, they have headlined festivals, toured the world and released their first retrospective titled Telephantasm which included the previously unreleased song, "Black Rain" and their first live album, Live on I-5. The press has exalted their return to the stage and the music scene. Rolling Stone called their headline performance at Lollapalooza "an epic set ... a blueprint of the Seattle sound," where the Chicago Tribune hailed them as "one of the last great hard-rock bands to emerge in the last 25 years." The band are currently in the studio in Seattle writing and recording their first LP in over 15 years, which is set for release in 2012.

In addition to Soundgarden's "Live to Rise," the Avengers Assemble collection features original songs inspired by the exciting and action-packed film event. The diverse range of artists includes Rise Against, Shinedown, Bush and Redlight King.
