According to Jerry Cantrell, the new Alice in Chains is going to be like nothing we’d ever expect from them.
A May release is planned for The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.
The group’s fifth studio effort — its second with William DuVall on the mike — follows 2009′s Black Gives Way To Blue.
“We made a unique record that’s completely different from anything we ever did,” guitarist Jerry Cantrell tells RollingStone.com.
“It encapsulates a period of time, like all records do. You see growth and that the band is moving ahead in new territory that we haven’t been to before, but we haven’t lost our identity.”
He then added: “There’s some real filth in there. That’s intentional, and that’s also just how we sound together.”
Filth is always intentional.
“We’re trying to make a record that we dig and we’re trying to keep the bar high for ourselves and see if we can get past it, and I think that we did again. And of course you want people to dig it too and to respond to it, and to have that start happening is satisfying.”
