Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell Speaks Of The Band’s Forthcoming New Album


Alice In Chains vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell has spoken to Guitar World about the band’s forthcoming sixth full-length album, which is due out this summer. According to Cantrell, recording for the as-yet untitled effort is done and Joe Barresi (Tool, Queens Of The Stone Age) was brought on to mix.

The majority of the sessions took place at both Studio X in Seattle, WA and the Nashville, TN home studio of the album’s producer Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Mastodon), while a few sessions took also place at Cantrell‘s own home and at Henson Recording Studios. Speaking of the relative secrecy around the album, Cantrell commented:

“It’s not that we were keeping it a secret—we just didn’t want to say a whole lot about it until we had something to say. And we certainly have something to say with this one. It’s a fucking strong record.”

Regarding the material itself, he stated:

“It’s a record we haven’t done yet, I can tell you that. But it’s also a record that has all the elements of anything you would expect from us. It’s got our fingerprint. And we’re really proud of the material that we wrote and the performances we captured. There’s some really heavy shit, some really ugly stuff, some real beautiful stuff, some weirdo trippy shit… it’s good!”

The band are about to kick off their spring/summer touring plans with this run of dates booked.
