Watch: Soundgarden New Video ‘Been Away Too Long’

Soundgarden have released a video for lead single Been Away Too Long, taken from the brand spanking new record King Animal, which came out in Australia over the weekend. The clip’s narrative follows a young girl as she attempts to escape what appears to be a very cold and desolate mental institution.

The lady in question sheds her straightjacket and flees for her life from soldiers in gas masks and their fearsome K-9s. Things take a turn for the worst after the escaping patient cuts herself on the horn of an Antelope skull, as depicted on the album cover, but we’ll let you see what happens for yourself.

Of the rest of the album, a recent review has described it as “concrete proof that the band still has the musical chops and grit to cut it in the modern musical environment.” and that, “the remarkable thing about Soundgarden is that they’re a band who’s able to pick up where they left off without sacrificing quality.”
