ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist/vocalist Jerry Cantrell has released a solo track, "Setting Sun", inspired by DC Entertainment's new graphic novel "Dark Nights: Metal: Deluxe Edition", available now in comic book shops, bookstores and digitally.
The "Setting Sun" visualizer can be seen below.
This deluxe hardcover collects issues #1-6 of the "Dark Nights: Metal" monthly series and is written and drawn by the best-selling creative team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo. Batman has uncovered an ancient and evil mystery... One that could destroy the very fabric of the DC Universe! A Dark Multiverse has been revealed, full of devastating threats and vile creatures that have been loosed upon the DCU, with only The World's Greatest Super-Heroes rising to the challenge of defending it!
"Setting Sun" was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Grammy Award winner Mike Elizondo (EMINEM, TWENTY-ONE PILOTS, THE REGRETTES) and film composer and former MARILYN MANSON guitarist Tyler Bates ("Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 1 & 2", "Deadpool").
Cantrell's "Setting Sun" is the fifth release in this series of tracks.
Previous releases in this series of tracks inspired by DC Comics' new graphic novel "Dark Days: The Road To Metal" include "Red Death" by Brann Dailor, co-vocalist, drummer, and co-founder of Grammy Award-winning heavy rock juggernaut MASTODON; Chino Moreno's (DEFTONES) solo track "Brief Exchange"; Jason Aalon Butler's (THE FEVER 333) "Fact Check"; and Maria Brink and Chris Howorth's (IN THIS MOMENT) track "The Calling".
Cantrell and ALICE IN CHAINS are gearing up for the August 24 release of "Rainier Fog", their first new album in five years.
