ALICE IN CHAINS's KINNEY, DUVALL Interviewed By Australia's MUSIC FEEDS (Video)

Music Feeds conducted an interview with ALICE IN CHAINS vocalist William DuVall and drummer Sean Kinney on Sunday, February 23 at the Sydney stop of this year's Soundwave festival in Australia. You can now watch the chat below.

ALICE IN CHAINS' fifth studio album, "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here", sold 62,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart. The disc follows up 2009's "Black Gives Way To Blue", which was the group's first all-new collection of material in 14 years. That CD opened with 126,000 units back in October 2009 to debut at No. 5.

ALICE IN CHAINS was last in the Top Two with its self-titled 1995 set, which debuted at No. 1 on that year's November 25 chart, according to Billboard.com. It would be their final studio release with singer Layne Staley, who died in 2002.

"The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" is ALICE IN CHAINS' second album with William DuVall on vocals.

Asked how he would characterize his guitar role in ALICE IN CHAINS, DuVall told GuitarPlayer.com in a 2013 interview: "It's everything from writing riffs to providing counterpoint to what [Jerry] Cantrell is doing to doubling what he's doing to playing solos. I do the solo on 'Phantom Limb' on this new album. So, it's really everything that you would expect from a two-guitar band. My being in the group also gives the band another guitar player who can write things, and we've also turned into a bit more of a jamming outfit when we rehearse. I'm told they didn't really do a whole lot of that before. But that's sort of where I come from: a jamming background. I'll start up something and see where it goes in rehearsal. That's a different way of interacting, which is cool."
