New footage will be launched each Wednesday for three weeks, so keep checking the band's MySpace page.A teaser for the video tour diary can be viewed below. ALICE IN CHAINS has extended its current North American tour into mid-May, with a new leg of dates beginning on April 15 in Portland, Maine and ending on May 23 in Camden, New Jersey. More shows are likely to be announced to fill in the early part of May. The band is touring behind its 2009 comeback effort, "Black Gives Way To Blue", and singer/guitarist William DuVall told The Pulse of Radio that he likes what he's seeing in the audiences. "There's a lot of young people showing up, so that this thing has become a generational band now," he said. "So you've got people, 15, 16, 17 years old, that are coming of their own volition. I mean, they're not being brought there by their parents or anything. They're coming on their own. They're bringing their friends. So that's one thing that's a real sign that perhaps you're onto something." ALICE IN CHAINS plays Tuesday night (March 2) in Charlotte, North Carolina. "Black Gives Way To Blue" is the band's first new studio set in 14 years and features DuVall's recording debut with the group. He began singing with them live in 2006. Original frontman Layne Staley died in April 2002. The current single from the album is "Your Decision".
