ALICE IN CHAINS To Release 'Your Decision' Single - Oct. 12, 2009
To coincide with the band's European tour, ALICE IN CHAINS will release a new single, "Your Decision", on November 16 in the U.K.

"Your Decision" is the second single to be lifted from band's first all-new album in 14 years, titled "Black Gives Way To Blue", which sold 126,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 5 on The Billboard 200 chart (behind latest albums from PARAMORE, MARIAH CAREY, BARBRA STREISAND and BREAKING BENJAMIN).

ALICE IN CHAINS took part in "Stripped", Clear Channel Music Group's exclusive in-studio performance series created for artists who thrive on performing without the typical studio and video embellishments. The three-song performance, which was taped on September 9 at the PC Richard & Son Theater in New York City, can be viewed below.

Acoustic versions of the following songs are available:

* "Check My Brain"
* "Your Decision"
* "No Excuses"

ALICE IN CHAINS will perform on the October 30 edition of NBC's "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien".

ALICE IN CHAINS recruited pop legend Elton John to contribute piano to the CD's title track, which is written in tribute to Staley.

William DuVall had played with his own group, COMES WITH THE FALL, as well as in Jerry Cantrell's solo band, before joining up with ALICE IN CHAINS in 2006.

"Black Gives Way to Blue" was recorded with producer Nick Raskulinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, RUSH) at the Northridge, California studio of FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl.

Just ask any of the losers that hang out with me!
I'm a star in a bar and I'll never go far!

their decision to release "Your Decision" as a single was the best decision they could have made to make this album heard.

Is there another reason for a working band, genius? If you don't like the song, that's fine, but that doesn't negate the fact that it's a sound business decision (newsflash: the band is in the music business).

Your opinion aside, it's a damn good song.

But its their decision, I mean Jerry's.

Buy the new Porcupine Tree CD instead

But anyways, this is definitely a good idea for the band. Everyone who was a fan of the "No Excuses" and "Heaven Beside You" AIC will hear this and be reminded of why they were so good.

Alice in Chains dont exist without Layne Staley. Just like Pantera dont without Dimebag.

RIP-Layne Staley

So according to your logic AC-DC should have quit after Bon Scott died?

RIP-Bon Scott.
