Alice in Chains mainman Jerry Cantrell has recently stated that he would have no problem with the forthcoming release "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" being the group's final record. In an exclusive chat with Jack Osbourne on Fuse TV, guitar mastermind discussed the new album alongside drummer Sean Kinney, saying that "it's amazing they are making music" considering all the things the group has gone through.
"We've obviously come through a lot since we started playing again. We've come a long way. We're just trying to feel out where we are and do what feels right. I look at every record like it's your last. We know pretty well how final things can be. It's amazing we're making music after all the things we've been through. I can rest happily with this being the last record, if that's what it was."
The rest of the interview also shows the duo discussing the current state of music industry, with the drummer saying that he's been waiting for a music revolution that never came.
"I've been waiting for that new revolution where a whole generation would come together round some type of music. It doesn't seem to have happened."
Meanwhile, the band has ripped the stage during their recent 3-song performance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" show. Apart from two fresh singles, "Stone" and "Hollow," the group also delivered a classic tune "Man in a Box."
With the very first "Stone" beat, the band basically tore the stage apart, making it ever so clear that they're back with that massive sludge riff. The four-piece proves they are in great shape with one of their biggest hits, "Man in a Box," featuring some top-quality vocal performance. Finally, AIC drops yet another bomb with "Hollow." A monster of a riff and a slightly faster tempo marked the end of their performance, making it clear that Alice in Chains are the band you'll be wanting to hear live, as they are about to kick off their latest US tour on April 25 in Miami Beach, Florida.
"The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here," is ready to hit the stores on May on May 28 via Virgin/EMI Records. As the group's fifth release, it's the second one to feature vocalist William DuVall.
