In their 27 year history, Soundgarden have never released a live album — until now. The grunge gods are celebrating their triumphant reunion last year with the new collection Live on I5, which will be released on March 22, the band announced on their official site. Check out the track list below.

The album collects 17 tracks recorded during the band's 1996 West Coast tour, following the release of their last studio album Down on the Upside. Live on I5 features tracks from their entire catalogue, including "Jesus Christ Pose," "Spoonman," and "Black Hole Sun." The album includes cuts from some of the band's final shows leading up to their first breakup in April 1997.

As SPIN previously reported, Soundgarden have been toying with recording new music. "I'm not confirming anything, but it's impossible for us to get in a room and not come up with ideas," guitarist Kim Thayil said last month. The group is also planning to release more archival material, including additional live records and a collection of B-sides. "We'll be doing other shows and releasing some albums from deeper in our catalog," Thayil said.
