Although there was no official breakup of Alice in Chains, the band effectively split up in 1996. Singer Layne Staley had become a recluse after the death of his ex-fiancee, which caused the troubled vocalist to delve deeper into drug culture. Any hopes for a reunion were apparently shuttered when Staley died in 2002 of a drug overdose.

However, the band slowly began to play shows again in 2005, as Jerry Cantrell, Mike Inez and Sean Kinney united at a tsunami benefit show. Alice in Chains kept the ball rolling by recruiting vocalist William DuVall and embarking on a short 2006 U.S. club tour, along with festival dates in Europe a number of shows in Japan. the group is now gearing up to release a new album in 2013.
