ALICE IN CHAINS CHOOSE NEW SINGER:
April 6, 2006
Comes With The Fall singer William DuVall will be singing lead vocals for Alice In Chains on their upcoming European tour, filling the shoes of Layne Staley who died in 2002.
Alice In Chains recently reunited and announced a US tour and European festival dates, but there is no word of any recording.
Guitarist Jerry Cantrell told said: “We’re gonna take it like we always did, and we’ve always kind of made it up as we’ve gone along. If you were looking at how to really capitalize on this experience and really make dough and make it a profitable thing, a band might, you know, would come out with a singer, have a record ready and all that. But that’s not where we’re coming from with this thing. We’re coming from the place of ‘It feels good, and we’re having a good time, so we’d like people to be a part of that.'”
Cantrell, bassist Mike Inez and drummer Sean Kinney performed with DuVall and ex-Pantera frontman Philip Anselmo at recent VH1 Classic recording session. This was only the second live performance from the bands since 1996. The band members played at a tsunami relief benefit in February of 2005.
