Alice In Chains have finished recording their first album together in 14 years and the band, which now features William Duvall on vocals, is eyeing a September release for their highly anticipated album of new material. After the untimely death of former vocalist Lane Staley in 2002, the band did briefly reunite in 2005 and now fans will finally have their long awaited album of new material from the band who was at the forefront of the Seattle grunge scene in the 1990's.
We caught up with guitarist Jerry Cantrell
at the Revolver Golden God Awards
to get an update on where the band is at in the studio and when they plan on releasing the album.
"We actually finished recording March 18th, which was my birthday and the day William's son was born so it was a pretty cool day. Huge day! So, we finished on the 18th and we're in the process of mixing right now. We're just about done with that. We're looking at a September release."
Alice In Chains was one of the most successful music acts of the 1990s and sold over 14 million albums in the United States alone, achieved two number-one Billboard 200 albums (Jar of Flies and Alice in Chains), 11 top ten singles on the Mainstream Rock Tracks charts, and six Grammy Award nominations. Alice In Chains will be one of the acts performing at the third annual Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio on May 16th and 17th joining Slipknot, Korn, Motley Crue, Avenged Sevenfold and Buckcherry to name just a few of the bands slated to perform.
