Alice in Chains have officially premiered the video for "Stone," the second single from their upcoming album "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here." Previously released via iTunes and as a lyric video, the song was also premiered live as an opening track during the group's latest performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live show.
The video itself is a follow-up to massively successful first single "Hollow," which debuted at No. 1 position on both the Mainstream and Active Rock radio charts, with the video easily crossing the one million views mark on YouTube.
"The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" is set to drop on May 28 via Virgin/EMI Records. Recorded in Los Angeles with Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones) handling the production duties, the "Black Gives Way to Blue" successor will mark the fifth release in the group's catalogue.
The band recently also took time to discuss the slightly odd album title, revealing that its background story and the main inspiration came from the religious fundamentalists' belief saying that Satan planted dinosaur bones into the Earth to confuse the believers and drift them away from their faith.
"They're not wrong for believing that dinosaur stuff, but we aren't wrong for asking them to explain it either," drummer Sean Kinney told Noisecreep. "Are we supposed to believe that some little mythical dude with cloven hooves cruised around the planet hiding bones that were millions of years old to fool us for some f--king reason? It's ridiculous."
Alice in Chains are currently preparing to embark on a month-long US tour starting in Miami Beach on April 25. The group has also confirmed a Download Festival performance on June 15, as well as a Brazil concert on the iconic Rock in Rio festival on September 19.
