Guitar mastermind Jerry Cantrell
of Alice in Chains
recently discussed the possibility of making a new record, stating that "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
" follow-up might take a bit longer than expected.
Cantrell also talked with 94 Rock
about the upcoming tour plans, revealing a busy schedule. "There's one more trip back to UK and two more trips around the states probably - and maybe get back to Canada as well,"
he stated, switching to new album discussion.
"It'll be a while,"
the axeman said. "It's
[been] four years since we put the last one out, but at least it's not the gap that was between the last one, so that's about right - about three to four years."
The guitarist then remembered the time when the current AiC singer William DuVall
performed as an opening act on his solo tour, praising the vocalist's life attitude and work ethic.
"I respect his attitude about what we do,"
he said. "It's like us - he's a lifer and that's why he fits in. He cares about it and his work ethic is second to none. Nobody I know works harder than him - I don't even work as hard as he does,"
"The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" was released back in late May as the fifth record in Alice in Chains opus. With 61,000 units shipped in the US within the first week, it landed at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. The band recently posted their latest single, "Voices
" lyric video. Check it out below.
