It’s been five years since Alice In Chains released a studio album in “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.” Now, the band is looking to put the final touches together, as they get set to wrap up their newest follow up that fans have been waiting in excitement to hear what the band has to offer after a long layoff from any new material.
Alice In Chains guitarist, Jerry Cantrell, spoke out about the upcoming album, sharing high hopes, and a great deal of excitement for what is to come once the album is ready to make its way to store shelves.
“It’s not that we were keeping it a secret — we just didn’t want to say a whole lot about it until we had something to say. And we certainly have something to say with this one. It’s a fucking strong record,” said Cantrell.
It’s a lot of work doing a record,” Cantrell added, “and I think it gets harder the older we get. But we just wait until we’re ready and until we have enough material that’s up to the Alice In Chains standard, and then we do what we do. This is just the racket that we make when we get together.”
It’s a record we haven’t done yet, I can tell you that. 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 that we wrote and the performances we captured. There’s some really heavy shit, some really ugly stuff, some real beautiful stuff, some weirdo trippy shit… it’s good!”
