Alice in Chains Plan Return to Seattle Studio to Record New Album Over Summer 2017
Alice in Chains fans have been wondering about when we might see new music from the band, and Jerry Cantrell revealed some good news during an appearance at the 10th Annual George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic. Speaking with Good Celebrity, as seen in the video above, Cantrell confirmed that recording is about to commence on their follow-up to 2013's The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.
"We are just gearing up to make a record. We'll be moving up to Seattle in about a month and record the record over the summer out there in the same studio we recorded our third record in. So it'll be kind of fun — go home, make a Seattle record. Hometown boys in a hometown studio," explained Cantrell.
The singer-guitarist revealed that it will definitely be in the vein of what fans have come to expect from the band. "Hey, this is what we do," says Cantrell. "At this age, I can't really do much else. So we do us, and we're lucky enough to be able to have the opportunity to still be doing it and making good music and having a good time."
He also spoke on the Alice fanbase allowing them to still have a career at this point, stating, "We've got really great fans that have been with us through all the years and all the changes and if you're really lucky as an artist you can make music that transcends generations and keeps moving on, so no complaints."
No official release date has been set for the next Alice in Chains album, but depending on how their time in the studio goes, it's likely that we'll see either a late 2017 or early 2018 street date.
