Formed in 1987 by guitarist Jerry Cantrell and the late, original Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley, Alice in Chains emerged in the early 90s as part of the burgeoning Grunge scene in Seattle with their debut album, Facelift and the break-through, multi-platinum follow-up, Dirt.
Dirt spawned a string of singles, especially ‘Them Bones’ and ‘Would?’ set the Grunge scene alight and established Alice in Chains as a major force.
The eponymous Alice in Chains album followed in 1995 and marks the last album the band recorded with Layne Staley.
Following the death of Staley in 2002, guitarist Jerry Cantrell put he band on hiatus to work on solo material, before bringing Alice in Chains back with the addition of newly recruited singer William DuVall. The current Alice in Chains line-up also includes long-time Alice in Chains members, bassist Mike Inez and Sean Kinney on drums.
The band released the first new Alice in Chains material in 2009. Black Gives Way To Blue arrived almost 14 years after the self-titled, Alice in Chains album and marks the first Alice in Chains material with William DuVall on vocals.
Alice in Chains' new album 'The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here' is the first studio album in four years, and with new frontman and vocalist William DuVall, taking the reigns after the death of Layne Staley. Their new material proves that even a 'shocking' heavy metal band can re-invent themselves. Heavily rocked based, Alice in Chains continues to bring relevant music in 2013.
In the first week of sales in the US, Alice in Chains made its way to the #2 spot on the Billboard 200 Chart, and has proven to be more successful than their previous effort 'Black Gives Way To Blue' which reached #5 on the chart in 2009.
Jerry Cantrell said of making the band's new album:
"You should start from a zero every time, and we started from a zero with this record just like we've done with every record we've made..."
Alice in Chains will be touring Canada, America and Mexico before venturing to the UK for their November tour.
