Alice In Chains Work On Next Album
According to Blabbermouth.net, Seattle grunge legends Alice In Chains have commenced work on the follow-up to 2009's gold-certified album "Black Gives Way To Blue" (Virgin/EMI), according to longtime friend Ann Wilson of Heart. In a conversation last Tuesday (July 19th) with Ultimate Classic Rock, Wilson mentioned that she had visited Alice In Chains this weekend at the recording studio where they're working on their new album, which currently does not have a title and is reportedly set for release in early 2012. Wilson said that the band sounds "amazing" on the new material and enthused about guitarist Jerry Cantrell and the band, stating, "How can Jerry not sound amazing, but I mean, it really does - they're a monster." "Black Gives Way To Blue" was the first all-new Alice In Chains album since 1995 and the first to feature singer/guitarist William DuVall. DuVall told the Pulse Of Radio last year that he expects the band to take a lot less time to make a follow-up. "You don't come this far and do all this work just to then stop for (laughs), for another 15 years or, you know, stop forever or whatever", he said. "We are on a path, and just as it was in the beginning, we still don't know where it's gonna lead. But we're digging what we're doing and we're very happy with the reception that we've gotten." Alice In Chains began touring again in 2006 and DuVall officially became a member of the band before recording began on "Black Gives Way To Blue". Alice In Chains (guitarist/vocalist Jerry Cantrell, guitarist/vocalist William DuVall, drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Ine) spent 2010 performing a string of sold-out headlining tours around the world in support of "Black Gives Way To Blue". Fueled by lead single "Check My Brain", which rocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard Rock Songs Chart, "Black Gives Way To Blue" entered Billboard's Top 200 at No. 5. They maintained momentum with follow-up hit "Your Decision", which also shot straight to No. 1. Alice In Chains currently has two shows scheduled in August, including an appearance at the third annual MTS Rock On The Range Canada on Saturday, August 20 in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
