Grunge veterans Alice In Chains have decided to give fans a chance to discover the title of their forthcoming studio release with a special puzzle. All you have to do is decode the anagram given below.
The band also invites everyone to share their decoded messages on Instagram with a #AICALBUMTITLE tag.
"H V L E N T P S U S D A H I E E O E D T I U R R"
"Decode the past to reveal the future. Reassemble these letters to reveal the album title of the new Alice In Chains record. Share your decoded messages on Instagram, tagging #AICALBUMTITLE. Good luck."
The group recently premiered a video for "Hollow", the first single from the new album directed by Robert Schober, a.k.a. Roboshobo, an award-winning director known for his previous work with bands such as Metallica and Mastodon.
As far as the new album sound goes, guitarist Jerry Cantrell told Revolver magazine that he believes the album is unique, but has also added that fans won't be surprised with what they'll hear.
"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."
Back in December, the band has announced that the recording process is officially finished. The fifth studio release will once again feature singer/guitarist William Duvall, who had his debut with the band on their 2009 album "Black Gives Way To Blue".
