Alice In Chains have just debuted a brand-new song, "Hollow", via a lyric video created by fans who contributed images through Instagram (scroll down below to watch it).
The audio for "Hollow" will be available on iTunes beginning January 8, followed by the Vevo premiere of the song's official companion video. The song itself will be featured on the band's upcoming album, recorded in Los Angeles with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones). Alice In Chains' new album is set for a spring 2013 release and will be a follow-up to the band's hugely successful 2009 release "Black Gives Way To Blue", which entered Billboard's Top 200 at No. 5, sold over one million copies, spawned two No. 1 hit singles ("Check My Brain" and "Your Decision") and a third ("Lesson Learned") that went Top 10, earned two Grammy nominations and saw the band (vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell, vocalist/guitarist William DuVall, drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Inez) headlining a sold-out international tour that wrapped at Madison Square Garden in New York City.Speaking about the new record's sound and direction, guitarist Jerry Cantrell said, "I don't think you'll be surprised by anything you hear. It's us. But it's also really unique. It's got all the elements of any record we've put out, but it's unlike any record we've put out. Basically, it's the next chapter in the Alice In Chains book, and it's going to be a big one."
