Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell has confirmed that the band recently finished recording their new album, due out in 2013. The new disc will mark the follow-up to their 2009 release ‘Black Gives Way to Blue.’ Alice in Chains started working on the new tunes back in 2011 but were sidelined when Cantrell had to undergo surgery on his shoulder.
Rock bands covering songs by other acts is not really out of the ordinary, but something that doesn't happen everyday is a pair of rock bands teaming up on a cover. That was the case recently for hard rocking outfits Hurt and Smile Empty Soul, who found themselves spending a November day in Michigan covering the Alice in Chains classic 'No Excuses.'
Sammy Hagar knows how to throw a bash, and it helps when you make sure that Alice in Chains singer-guitarist Jerry Cantrell is on the guest list. Cantrell made a guest appearance at Hagar's Cabo Wabo Cantina (Oct. 13) to take part in Hagar's 65th birthday celebration.
Hidden in Alice in Chains' classic album 'Dirt' lies 'Intro (Dream Sequence) / Iron Gland.' The song went unlisted on the 1992 release of Alice in Chains' sophomore album and was tucked between 'God Smack' and 'Hate to Feel,' which caused the track listing to become inaccurate.
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.
