It’s been a busy year for Ben Shepherd!
The bassist reunited with his Soundgarden bandmates to release King Animal, the group’s first new album in 16 years, back in November, which they later supported with tour dates around the world.
In the midst of all of that, Shepherd somehow found the time to continue working on his first ever solo album, In Deep Owl, which was released on August 27.
The LP, which bills the rocker as H.B.S. (Hunter Benedict Shepherd), features guest appearances from Soundgarden bandmate Matt Cameron and former Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain, and was produced by Dave French, Chad MacMurray, Nathan Yaccino and Shepherd himself.
“Barron Robber,” the lead-off single from In Deep Owl, dropped back in June, and now the album’s second single, entitled “Collide” has been released with a music video which can be seen at RollingStone.com.
Meanwhile, Soundgarden will wrap up their 2013 tour dates with three shows, the first of which is set for tonight (September 16) at The O2 in Dublin.
