Alice in Chains Likely Starting New Album Work in 2015, Jerry Cantrell Explains
Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell recently shared a rough time schedule for the band's upcoming activities, noting that the guys will likely kick off the new album writing sometime in 2015.

Chatting with Lansing State Journal, Jerry was asked about what the future holds for the AiC fold.

"We're beginning the last part of the tour for this record, which is this tour," he replied. "Then, we'll tour through Canada in the summer, and do a month in Europe. We're doing some festivals in Europe and opening for Metallica mainly, and also Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden."

Getting to the juicy part, Cantrell added, "Then, we'll go one little special thing in the fall, then wrap it up and take a break before we start working on the next record."

Noting that he could see an Alice in Chains documentary "happening somewhere along the way" in the near future, the guitarist also jokingly added that "it's nice to still not have a straight job."

The band's latest studio effort, "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here," saw its release in May 2013 via Virgin Records.
