Alice In Chains Announce 30th Anniversary Edition Of “Jar Of Flies”


Grunge legends Alice In Chains have lifted the veil on a 30th anniversary edition of their 4x multi-platinum EP “Jar Of Flies“. The announcement of that effort arrives on the same date (January 25th) which the EP was originally released on back in 1994. That effort carries the distinction of being the first EP to ever debut at #1 on the Billboard 200.

A press release sums up what you can expect to find:

‘In addition to a standard black 12” vinyl release available from all retailers, the band’s official webstore will offer a number of D2C variants of Jar of Flies, including tri-colored vinyl, cassette, a clear variant with ‘flies’ embedded in the vinyl, and a deluxe box set featuring the EP on tri-colored vinyl, a logo-embossed jar with touch-activated red LED and faux flies, a 60-page hardcover book, and a double-sided poster, all housed in a screen-printed, UV coated shadowbox. Additionally, an exclusive merch capsule collection is available now, featuring limited edition apparel, a poker set, a skate deck in collaboration with Welcome Skateboards, and a ‘Whale & Wasp’ plush toy.’

A tentative March 22nd release date is expected. In addition to the various editions of the EP, a special 30th anniversary merch drop for the EP has also surfaced. You can dig into all of that via
