Alt-rock and grunge fans, rejoice! The iconic era will never die thanks to Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, who just announced Temple of the Dog (their supergroup) will be going on tour. This marks the first time they've officially hit the road together, and coincides with the 25th anniversary of their self-titled album.

Chris Cornell (Soundgarden), Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) and Matt Cameron (who drums for both bands), will begin their five-date trek on Nov. 4 in Philadelphia, PA. “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,” Cornell said in a press release.

There doesn't seem to be new music on the horizon, but the supergroup's debut (and only) LP will be reissued via UMe on September 30. It will include 48 unreleased demos, live cuts and mixes. Click here to preorder. Check out Temple of the Dog's anniversary tour dates below.
