Alice in Chains Return to Studio For Sixth Album

Subscribe to 92.9 Jack FM on

Alice in Chains are back in the studio! It’s been nearly four years since the alt legends released their fantastic The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here album, so it’s about that time for new Alice!

Alice in Chains’ post-Staley period has been one of the most successful comebacks in hard rock history. Nobody can truly fill the shoes of Layne Staley, but William DuVall and Jerry Cantrell’s dark harmonies have conjured up that raw Alice in Chains feeling for two critical acclaimed albums.

In a new interview with Framus & Warwick, bassist Mike Inez spoke about Alice getting together in the studio once again. “Today I’m leaving this studio and I’m going to another studio and I’m going to make a bunch of racket,” Inez said. “We’re hard at work, we’re always doing something, it’s just what we do, we play, usually everything else will come together. We used to worry about a label, management, the band has turned into, it’s a business and there’s a lot going on business [wise]. When we go into these studios, this is kind of like our clubhouse, this is the place that we go. We try not to make this business, this is fun.”

Inez continues, “We try to make our work environment fun for each other. Being in the studio for 20 hours a day isn’t fun, but it’s a great job. We try to make that our clubhouse, and separate it from the business. We’re still in that playing in the sandbox, for this new record anyways, we’re still getting together in the same city, plugging in the same room. Today is actually our first day and I’m already late, because I’m here talking to you, so it shows you how professional we still are.” [via Alternative Nation]
