Alice in Chains, ‘Hollow’ – Best 2013 Rock Songs
Alice in Chains may have previewed ‘Hollow’ in December, but the song was officially released as a single in January. And ‘Hollow’ is just the type of gritty track that we’ve come to expect from the almighty AIC.
‘Hollow’ is the first single off the band’s upcoming album ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here,’ due in May. As we learned on 2009’s ‘Black Gives Way to Blue,’ the addition of William DuVall hasn’t hindered the band from creating that grinding, grungy sound of their heyday. ‘Hollow’ follows in that tradition, with DuVall and Jerry Cantrell not only trading great harmonies, but also some crushing guitar riffs.
