Can any band stop Avenged Sevenfold from entering the Cage Match Hall of Fame? So far, the group has defeated AFI, Black Sabbath and Stone Sour, with only two more victories needed to enter the sacred hall.
Since the release of their fifth studio album ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’ in May, Alice in Chains have returned to the forefront as one of hard rock's leading forces. With two hit singles -- ‘Hollow’ and ‘Stone' -- already unleashed on the general public, AIC are sticking with the theme of enigmatic one word song titles for their next single, ‘Voices.’
Earlier this week Alice in Chains played Canada's Fox Fest in Burnaby, British Columbia, and invited a very special guest onstage. They were joined by Phil Staley, the father of the band's late vocalist Layne Staley. A video of his appearance can be seen above, while the band also posted a photo on their Instagram (see below).
The 2013 Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival already has quite an impressive lineup with Alice in Chains and Jane’s Addiction leading the charge but now the festival is opening up the opportunity for unsigned bands to compete for a once in a lifetime chance to perform on the tour.
Rock titans Alice in Chains recently teamed up with comedian and late night show host Jimmy Kimmel for a musical collaboration. It wasn't in the traditional sense of the live performances usually seen on the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ show though, as the tongue-in-cheek video above clearly demonstrates.
It's great to listen to Alice in Chains perform, but how cool would it be to be able to play like guitarist Jerry Cantrell? The musician was on hand at the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles to show exactly how the 2014 edition of Rocksmith can help you do just that.
It's story time with Jerry Cantrell! In a recent fascinating and hilarious interview, the Alice in Chains mastermind spoke about the essential art of the prank. When two bands have been touring together for some time, pranks are bound to happen, and Cantrell went into detail about an epic prank war between Alice in Chains and Van Halen from 1991.
Though many credited Nirvana with powering the grunge movement, Alice in Chains' 'Facelift' was a pre-cursor to the 'Nevermind' album and the dark and moody harmonizing of Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell provided a signature sound for the group.
Alice in Chains made their triumphant return last week (May 28) with the release of their latest offering ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.’ The new disc marks the follow up to 2009’s ‘Black Gives Way to Blue,’ and their second release since reuniting in 2005.
