Alice In Chains (vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell, vocalist/guitarist William DuVall, drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Inez) recently added a third leg to their worldwide headlining tour. Dates are listed below and ticket info can be found HERE.
RAINIER FOG follows 2013’s Grammy nominated The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, which entered Billboard’s Top 200 chart at No. 2 and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums, Hard Rock Albums charts and the iTunes Rock Album Chart. Its first two singles, “Stone” and “Hollow,” both shot to No. 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and “Voices” hit No. 3. All three tracks stayed on the chart for over 20 weeks.
Guns N’ Roses bassist and New York Times Best-Selling Author Duff McKagan recently wrote an Alice In Chains bio to accompany the album release (scroll down to read in its entirety). “Rainier Fog is another step further into the brilliance and musicality of what we have now come to expect from AIC,” wrote McKagan. “Sean Kinney’s super-unique drum style tells one epic story, Inez’s brooding bass lines tell yet another, Duvall’s guitar prowess and lead vocals guide and narrate and nurture the triumph and torture of the subject matter, and Cantrell’s jaw-dropping songwriting, vocals, and now-legendary riff-master approach all combine for another simply brilliant effort.”
“This is a band to cherish and be thankful to have as our own,” says McKagan. “Our living and breathing gauge of what is right with rock and fucking roll.”
