Alice In Chains Releases First New Song In Five Years

Jason Bullinger For Alternative Revolt

Rock legends Alice In Chains have just released “The One You Know,” their first new track in five years.

“The One You Know” is the first track from the band’s upcoming album, their first for new label home BMG.  Cantrell discussed the much-anticipated album in a recent interview, saying, “It’s a record we haven’t done yet, but it’s also a record that has all the elements of anything you would expect from us. It’s got our fingerprint. And we’re really proud of the material we wrote and the performances we captured. There’s some really heavy sh*t, some really ugly stuff, some real beautiful stuff, some weirdo trippy sh*t…it’s good.” As for the span between albums, he adds, “We wait until we’re ready and until we have material that’s up to the Alice In Chains standard and then we do what we do. This is the racket we make when we get together.”

Alice In Chains are currently on a worldwide trek that will take them across North America and Europe.
