Alice In Chains will kick off 2009 with a main stage slot on Australia's Soundwave Festival (Feb 21-Mar 1) alongside acts such as Nine Inch Nails, Lamb of God, Alkaline Trio, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and more.
However, more touring isn't the only thing up Alice In Chains' sleeve for 2009. There's also a new record on the way—the band's first studio album since 1995. Right now, Jerry Cantrell (Vocals/Lead Guitar), Mike Inez (Bass), Sean Kinney (Drums) and William Duvall (Vocals/Guitar) are hunkered down in a Los Angeles studio crafting their latest opus. Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush, Stone Sour), the album promises to be a sonic journey guided by eerily psychedelic solos, and unforgettable riffs.
David Benveniste (Beno), of Velvet Hammer Music and Management Group comments, "Our collective vision is to extend Alice In Chains into phase two of their career, worldwide. They have tremendous heritage, having sold some 15-million records, and an amazing repertoire of new material that they've written. Most importantly, Alice In Chains will be on the road in 2009 bringing new music to fans everywhere, worldwide."
Alice In Chains is back. Be ready.
