ALICE IN CHAINS Frontman Singing For GIRAFFE TONGUE ORCHESTRA Project

According to The Pulse Of Radio, ALICE IN CHAINS singer William DuVall is fronting a new act called GIRAFFE TONGUE ORCHESTRA, which is also comprised of members of MASTODON, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, THE MARS VOLTA and others. While the lineup has changed since the project was launched in 2012 — with actress and singer Juliette Lewis allegedly fronting it at one point — DuVall has apparently settled into the lead vocalist position.

Founder Ben Weinman from THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN said that Juliette Lewis was never the singer but had contributed some material, adding, "She did some cool vocals on some of the GIRAFFE TONGUE ORCHESTRA stuff. Actually, William from ALICE IN CHAINS is who has been singing with us."

Weinman noted that most of the music for GIRAFFE TONGUE ORCHESTRA's debut album had been written before DuVall joined the band. The record could come out this year.

ALICE IN CHAINS has been relatively quiet since completing the tour cycle for its last studio album, 2013's "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here", but the quartet has reportedly been working on an album for release in 2016, with live shows also on the horizon.
