The group — vocalist-guitarist Jerry Cantrell, vocalist-guitarist William DuVall, drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Inez — recently announced plans for a multi-episodic series of videos based on a story they introduced with "The One You Know", a clip directed by Adam Mason. They furthered the storyline with "Never Fade", with more Mason-directed clips on the way.

The band's first new studio effort in five years, "Rainier Fog" marks a few firsts for ALICE IN CHAINS: it's their first album for BMG and their first time recording in their hometown of Seattle in more than 20 years (worth noting that the album title is a tribute to Seattle). The "Rainier Fog" recording process also saw the band spend time at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles and at the Nashville studio of producer Nick Raskulinecz. "Rainier Fog" is the third straight ALICE IN CHAINS album recorded with Raskulinecz and engineer Paul Figueroa. The album was mixed by Joe Barresi (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, TOOL).
