Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron has announced that he will sit out the band's 2014 tour dates due to his live commitments with his other group, Pearl Jam. In a statement posted at Soundgarden's website on Friday (November 15th), Cameron wrote, "I will be taking 2014 off from Soundgarden touring due to prior commitments promoting Lightning Bolt with my brothers in Pearl Jam and the desire to have more time at home with my family. I am trying to balance the many twists and turns of my awesome music career. This is temporary." Cameron added, "I am still an active member of Soundgarden. Chris, Ben, Kim and I are in the process of finding the perfect substitute for the upcoming Soundgarden dates in 2014."
