ALICE IN CHAINS Drummer: 'I Know People Are Blown Away That We Really Sound Like Ourselves'

ALICE IN CHAINS singer-guitarist Jerry Cantrell and drummer Sean Kinney have told Billboard.com the band's new album, "Black Gives Way To Blue", which is due out September 29 on Virgin/EMI, doesn't stray too far from the Seattle band's influential catalog.

"It's nice to sound like yourself," laughed Kinney. "It's not really that hard, actually. I know people are blown away that we really sound like ourselves, and I understand the apprehension, but it's not really that big a stretch to sound the way that you sound."

Added Cantrell, "We were just hoping to make the best record we possibly could and we did that. Sean and I talk a lot about when you do a record you've been working on it a long time and you're pretty sick of it by the time somebody else hears it. You're already thinking of the next thing. And we're still listening to this. It's still like really exciting to listen to and that's really good."
