Alice In Chains Shows "Growth" On New LP
March 5, 2013


Alice In Chains
Fans are already digging the new Alice In Chains single, "Hollow," and the full album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, is set to come out in May. This will mark the band's second album with vocalist William DuVall, and singer/guitarist Jerry Cantrell says the effort shows a lot of growth.

"We made a unique record that's completely different from anything we ever did," he told Rolling Stone. "It encapsulates a period of time, like all records do. You see growth and that the band is moving ahead in new territory that we haven't been to before, but we haven't lost our identity."

Cantrell described the album's gritty sound as having "some real filth in there. That's intentional, and that's also just how we sound together. We're trying to make a record that we dig and we're trying to keep the bar high for ourselves and see if we can get past it, and I think that we did again. And of course you want people to dig it too and to respond to it, and to have that start happening is satisfying."

Alice In Chains will hit the road for a number of concerts and radio festivals starting on April 25 in Miami. The band has U.S. shows booked through the Rocklahoma festival in Oklahoma on May 25, and they'll also appear at the U.K.'s Download festival on June 15 and Brazil's Rock In Rio on September 19. Cantrell is excited to incorporate the band's new material into the live show.

"It's always great for us because we get new shit to play for people, and alongside of that we've been fortunate to have a pretty long career and have a lot of material that people react to," he told Rolling Stone. "There's really not any song in our repertoire that you can't play live... The bolts of the song, we can play our shit. It's kind of a lost art these days, to actually play your stuff without having to have some tracks to help you out!"
