ALICE IN CHAINS' video for the new track "A Looking In View" is available for viewing at the band's official web site. (Note: You must be 18 years of age to view.)
ALICE IN CHAINS' first collection of all-new studio material in 14 years, "Black Gives Way To Blue", is set for release on September 29 through EMI Music's Virgin Records label. The disc will feature the recording debut with the group of singer William DuVall, who first got behind the mic for the band's 2006 reunion tour after original vocalist Layne Staley died in 2002.
The album title first appeared on Amazon.com without any prior announcement from the band, who made their signing with Virgin official a couple of weeks ago through a press release that did not reveal a title or release date.
An official radio single called "Check My Brain" will head to rock stations in mid-August.
Guitarist Jerry Cantrell recently told The Pulse of Radio that ALICE IN CHAINS was "really proud" of the new record, adding, "Regardless of how it does, it's a win already for us, 'cause we really dig it and we stand behind it, and each other."
ALICE IN CHAINS will play a small, intimate gig at London, England's Scala on August 4 — two days after playing the second stage at the METALLICA-headlined inaugural Sonisphere festival, set to take place on August 1-2 at the legendary Knebworth Park, United Kingdom.
ALICE IN CHAINS will next perform on July 18 at Comerica Park in Detroit with KID ROCK. The group has yet to air any of the new material live.
