Alice In Chains Announce North American Headlining Tour

alice-in-chains-2013

Rock legends ALICE IN CHAINS have announced the first leg of their 2014 headlining tour of North America, set to kick off April 25th at the Brady Theatre in Tulsa (itinerary beow). It’ll be a busy year for the band, who are also playing a slew of international festivals, including Soundwave in Australia, the Singapore Rock Festival, Italy’s Rock in Roma, France’s Main Square Festival, the Sonisphere Festival (sharing the stage with Metallica) in Switzerland, Warsaw and London, the Czech Republic’s Aerodrome Festival and Vienna’s Krieau Rocks.

In other words, they’re picking up where they left off in 2013, which saw them traveling the world on a sold-out tour that included dates in the US, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Mexico, the UK and Canada. The band (vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell, vocalist/guitarist William DuVall, drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Inez) is touring in support of Grammy-nominated album The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, which entered Billboard’s Top 200 chart at No. 2 and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Albums Chart, Top Rock Albums Chart, Hard Rock Albums Chart and iTunes Rock Album Chart. The album’s first two singles, “Stone” and “Hollow,” both hit No. 1 on the rock charts with their companion videos racking up close to 5 million combined YouTube views.

Rolling Stone gave The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here three stars, as did USA Today, who praised it as an album of “undeniable power.” Spin called it “an assured, diverse, heated record with galvanized hooks, ”Pitchfork said it’s “as insistent as [1992’s landmark album] Dirt,” and the Seattle Times wrote, “Jerry Cantrell, William DuVall, Mike Inez and Sean Kinney continue to defy expectations” and that “Alice In Chains is better than ever.”

Proceeds went toward helping the survivors and aiding Music For Relief in delivering medicine, emergency medical services, water, sanitation and disease prevention efforts to the 12 million people impacted by the storm.
