COMES WITH THE FALL vocalist/guitarist William DuVall — who has been touring with the reunited ALICE IN CHAINS this summer as the band's lead singer — has posted the following message on the CWTF web site:
"First of all, I thought it was about time I extended my heartfelt thanks to all of you who came and showed your support at these recent ALICE IN CHAINS shows in Europe and Japan. Twenty-two countries in the last eight weeks. Whirlwind doesn't even begin to describe it. But I can say without reservation that, as grueling as the schedule occasionally got, the thunderous roar of your applause (and futbol chants) and the look of unmitigated joy on your faces as you sang along with us made everything more than worthwhile. It was an honor to sing for you, talk with you, drink with you, etc. Together we all experienced something life-altering out there. I won't ever forget it as long as I live.
"In other news, we finally went to press on the new CWTF EP on July 28. It is now called 'The Reckoning EP'. It will be a five-song affair. All of the songs will be exclusive to this record except 'Rockslide', which will also be on the 'Beyond The Last Light' album (release date still to be determined). 'The Reckoning EP' titles are as follows:
02. Escape The Crime
03. Evil Rising
04. The Reckoning
05. Chameleon Blues
"This entire song cycle, which includes 'The Reckoning EP' and the 'Beyond The Last Light' album, is by far the heaviest music CWTF have yet recorded. It was inspired by a lot of things going on in our world today which we felt compelled to address — not in a pedantic, dogmatic, or even particularly topical way, but address nonetheless. You are free to read into it what you will."
