    Members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam are reforming their supergroup, Temple of the Dog, for its first ever tour. The band features Soundgarden's Chris Cornell, Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, and Mike McCready, and drummer Matt Cameron, who plays drums with both Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. Chris Cornell said of the reformation, "We wanted to do the one thing we never got to do ... play shows and see what it feels like to be the band that we walked away from 25 years ago. This is something no one has ever seen. We wanted to stop and recognize that we did this and pay homage."

    The band initially formed in 1990 as a tribute to Cornell's good friend Andrew Wood, singer of Mother Love Bone, who had passed away and released their only album in 1991. In celebration of the self-titled album's 25th anniversary, the band will play five concerts in five cities, Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle, in November.

    Gossard says about the original album, it was "the easiest and most beautiful record that we've ever been involved with." And Cornell added, "Temple was about making an album simply for the joy of doing it. We weren't concerned what anyone outside of our group of friends would think of it. It was the first and maybe only stress-free album that we all made."
