Alice In Chains Release ‘Black Gives Way To Blue’ Sampler, Short Film


September 18, 2009

Alice in Chains are preparing to release Black Gives Way To Blue on September 29th, and are now giving fans a sneak peek at each track from the album. Black Gives Way To Blue has been praised by Revolver for its “dense tapestry of heavy guitars and soaring melodies” and Reuters wrote “the heavy guitars, submerged vocals and thunderous rhythm section assures fans that the band has lost none of its menace.”

Alice in Chains have just released a short film which features the band speaking on the tragedy of former singer Layne Staley’s death to the triumphant return of the band with new singer William Duvall. Follow the band as they recount their first performance without Layne in the wake of the Tsunami tragedy, their introduction to William, and the creative processes that led to the birth of the new album: all whilst getting their faces painted KISS style. Black Gives Way To Blue drops everywhere September 29th.
