ALICE IN CHAINS: 'MTV Unplugged' Re-Release To Include Unaired Footage

According to Billboard.com, Columbia/Legacy will on September 18 reissue ALICE IN CHAINS' "MTV Unplugged" album featuring a DVD with tracks and extras that did not appear on the original home video version. The session, taped in April 1996, features the unaired songs "Frogs", "Angry Chair" and "The Killer Is Me".
ALICE IN CHAINS recently began writing songs for its first new studio album in 12 years.

Guitarist Jerry Cantrell, drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Inez reunited in 2005 at a tsunami benefit in Seattle before heading out last year on full European and North American tours with DuVall singing.

Cantrell told Launch last year that while new music wasn't out of the question, the band wasn't ready to commit to anything. "It's gonna be cool to see what happens," he said. "I'm just really excited about the possibilities, 'cause there's a lot of possibilities open. And that's a pretty cool place to start and it's a good place to just leave it there, rather than just making a bunch of claims of what we're gonna do and not living up to them (laughs)."

ALICE IN CHAINS performed at the second annual "VH1 Rock Honors", which was taped on May 12 in Las Vegas. This year's show honored OZZY OSBOURNE, HEART, GENESIS and ZZ TOP, with performances and tributes from QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, NICKELBACK, KEANE and others.
