Alice in Chains: 'Every New Record Can Completely F--king Destroy Your Reputation'
Seeing that it's been well over a month since Alice in Chains unleashed their latest record "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here," guitar mastermind Jerry Cantrell took some time to sum up his impressions of the album's success so far. During an interview with Shaw Connect, the axeman didn't hesitate to express his satisfaction, saying that everything basically went as good as it possibly can. "You have the opportunity every time you make [a new record] to completely f--king destroy your reputation and f--king lay a turd. But it couldn't have gone any better. We had a successful tour, people dug it, it performed well in a dwindling economy and also a dwindling music business." Cantrell continued, saying, "So we kind of reestablished the band, brought in a new member, did a lot of stuff and it worked out. Now we don't have to worry about that so now where do we go?" There is definitely more to come from the ranks of Seattle rock legends, but it most definitely won't be in the near future, as the group is planning not only to additionally promote the current record, but also take a long vacation once everything is wrapped up. "Oh no way, not even [laughs]," the guitarist said when asked about whether he is even considering a new album at the moment. "That will be well after we take a nice long vacation after this one." Speaking of the current AiC release, Cantrell has officially confirmed in a separate radio interview on Power 97 that the four-piece is planning to shoot a new video, this time around for "Voices," track number four off the latest album. The axeman admitted that he enjoys the softer side of the band to a great extent, so it comes as no surprise that "Voices" was the tune the group opted for. Previous videos include "Hollow" and "Stone." AiC recently also confirmed a new string of UK tour dates set to take place in November featuring Ghost as a support act.
