Legendary Rockers Alice In Chains Release First New Track In 5 Years!

ALICE IN CHAINS (vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell, drummer Sean Kinney, bassist Mike Inez and vocalist/guitarist William DuVall) has released “The One You Know,” their first new track in five years – click HERE to listen/purchase and HERE to watch the Adam Mason-directed video.

“The One You Know” is the first track from the band’s upcoming album, their first for new label home BMG.  Cantrell discussed the much-anticipated album in a recent interview, saying, “It’s a record we haven’t done yet, but it’s also a record that has all the elements of anything you would expect from us. It’s got our fingerprint. And we’re really proud of the material we wrote and the performances we captured. There’s some really heavy sh*t, some really ugly stuff, some real beautiful stuff, some weirdo trippy sh*t…it’s good.” As for the span between albums, he adds, “We wait until we’re ready and until we have material that’s up to the Alice In Chains standard and then we do what we do. This is the racket we make when we get together.”

The yet-to-be-titled album is the third straight Alice In Chains studio release recorded with producer Nick Raskulinecz and engineer Paul Figueroa following 2013’s The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here and 2009’s Black Gives Way To Blue, both of which achieved commercial and critical success. The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here entered Billboard’s Top 200 chart at No. 2 and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums, Hard Rock Albums charts and the iTunes Rock Album Chart and its first two singles, “Stone” and “Hollow,” both hit No. 1 on the rock charts. Black Gives Way To Blue debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200, spawned two No. 1 hit singles with “Check My Brain” and “Your Decision” and garnered two Grammy nominations. Along the way, the band drew praise from the likes of Rolling StoneUSA Today, Spin, Pitchfork,  Seattle Times, Consequence Of Sound, Q and many more.

Alice In Chains are currently on a worldwide trek that will take them across North America and Europe. Dates are listed below and ticket info can be found HERE.
