"I don't see any reason why not. I think the overall attitude about keeping it going...seems to be really good. There's nothing stopping us from continuing to make records, that's for sure, and continuing to play shows.

Soundgarden's latest tour wraps up February 17, with more dates expected to be announced for later in the year. Cornell, meanwhile, is also planning a solo tour for this year.
