In addition, limited edition Alice In Chains merchandise, rare photos, memorabilia, music gear and more will be on display at the Alice In Chains Pop-Up Shop and Retrospective at The Crocodile on August 23rd and 24th (click HERE for more info), to be followed by the band’s August 25th performance at KISW’s “Pain In The Grass” at the White River Amphitheatre.
Recorded with producer Nick Raskulinecz (his 3rd consecutive album with the band) and mixed by Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool), Rainier Fog will be available digitally, as well as on CD and limited-edition double 180-gram clear LP with white and black splatter (the latter is available only from the band’s online store HERE).
Guns N’ Roses bassist and New York Times Best-Selling Author Duff McKagan recently wrote an Alice In Chains bio to accompany the album release (scroll down to read in its entirety). “Rainier Fog is another step further into the brilliance and musicality of what we have now come to expect from AIC,” wrote McKagan. “Sean Kinney’s super-unique drum style tells one epic story, Inez’s brooding bass lines tell yet another, Duvall’s guitar prowess and lead vocals guide and narrate and nurture the triumph and torture of the subject matter, and Cantrell’s jaw-dropping songwriting, vocals, and now-legendary riff-master approach all combine for another simply brilliant effort.”
“This is a band to cherish and be thankful to have as our own,” says McKagan. “Our living and breathing gauge of what is right with rock and fucking roll.”
