ALICE IN CHAINS: New Album Title Revealed - Feb. 14, 2013
ALICE IN CHAINS has set "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" as the title of its new album. The band's fifth studio LP and second without original vocalist Layne Staley was once again produced by Nick Raskulinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, DEFTONES) and is scheduled for release in May. Fueling excitement is the first track "Hollow", which was initially released as a lyric video but has taken on a life of its own, hitting No. 1 in America on the Mainstream Rock radio chart and closing in on No. 1 on the Active Rock radio chart.

The band posted the lyric clip on their official site back on December 18 and it quickly went viral. As word spread among fans, radio programmers nationwide bypassed traditional procedure and began playing the song on air. Rather than wait to receive an official edited track from the record company, stations played the almost-six-minute-long version of "Hollow" in its entirety. Over the course of the weeks that followed, the song's radio spins increased exponentially, making it the No. 1 Top Gainer at Active Rock for six consecutive weeks.

The song was amplified by the VEVO premiere of an official companion video, which was shot by award-winning director Roboshobo (a.k.a. Robert Schober; METALLICA, MASTODON). The stunning sci-fi-themed clip is already nearing the one-million-views mark.

"I don't think you'll be surprised by anything you hear," b>ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell told Revolver about the new CD's musical direction. "It's us. But it's also really unique. It's got all the elements of any record we've put out, but it's unlike any record we've put out. Basically, it's the next chapter in the ALICE IN CHAINS book, and it's going to be a big one."

The new disc will follow up 2009's "Black Gives Way To Blue", which ended a 14-year gap between studio efforts for the group and featured singer/guitarist William DuVall.

"In my opinion, that record stood up to anything else we've put out in our career. Hopefully, the new album will connect with people in the same way," Cantrell told Guitar World.

DuVall told The Pulse Of Radio while the band was touring behind that album that he was seeing a new generation of ALICE fans at the shows. "There's a lot of young people showing up, so that this thing has become a generational band now," he said. "So you've got people, 15, 16, 17 years old, that are coming of their own volition. I mean, they're not being brought there by their parents or anything. They're coming on their own. They're bringing their friends. So that's one thing that's a real sign that perhaps you're onto something."

ALICE IN CHAINS began working on new material in 2011, but the sessions for the album were delayed when Cantrell had to undergo shoulder surgery.

The only thing I can gather from this title is that the existence of Dinosaurs millions of years ago conflicts with information in the Bible which never mentions dinosaurs and says the age of the earth is only a few thousand years old, meaning that Dinosaurs are invented by the Devil to attempt to discredit "Biblical Truth". So, mocking religion/Christianity I guess?

Anyway, it's a weird one.

Black Gives Way to Blue was a better album title. Can't wait for this album, the last one was one of my favorite albums of the 2000's.

Makes Megadeth's SuperCollider sound better, I gotta say.

As long as the music sounds good, I will buy it though.

Are you sure they haven't mixed this up with the new Megadeth title?

Sounds like something that swivel-eyed nutjob Praise Cumstaine would call his album.

You're forgetting that Jerry Cantrell was the principal song-writer as well as singer/guitarist. The band has always revolved around him. You sir speak out of your ass.

I can only hope it's lyrical content is better than the last album, though. Talk about boring and predictable.

With all due respect to AIC, the album name is meh. I like what Craig3010 did with the anagram. Well done, man.
