CARDBOARD VAMPYRES, the new "covers" band featuring former ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell and ex-THE CULT guitarist Billy Duffy, will be opening for JUDAS PRIEST and QUEENSRŸCHE on Saturday, July 2 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. In addition, there will be a special post-show fireworks display.

CARDBOARD VAMPYRES currently have Eric Dover (ALICE COOPER, JELLYFISH, SLASH'S SNAKEPIT, SEXTUS) temporarily handling the vocals while John Corabi (MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE SCREAM, UNION, ERIC SINGER PROJECT) is out touring with RATT. Handling the drums at all upcoming CARDBOARD VAMPYRES shows will be Bevan Davies (COMES WITH THE FALL, DANZIG).

CARDBOARD VAMPYRES play songs from both ALICE IN CHAINS and THE CULT, as well as covers of tunes by artists like BLACK SABBATH, LED ZEPPELIN, METALLICA, and others. As of yet, there are no plans for the group to write or record any original material.

As previously reported, Cantrell is currently recording new music at Doug Fieger's studio in Los Angeles. He is joined in the studio by Chris Wyse on bass and Stephen Perkins on drums (both ex-JANE'S ADDICTION). Cantrell's new tunes are said to be sounding "amazing," with one track reportedly featuring Doug Fieger on slide guitar.
