Alice in Chains to Enter Studio in October

'90s Seattle heavyweights Alice in Chains will begin recording a new studio album--their first since 1995--next month. The band--guitarist Jerry Cantrell, drummer Sean Kinney, bassist Mike Inez, and new vocalist William DuVall--convened in Los Angeles in late July/early August to rehearse and go over new material for an upcoming studio release.

After a decade-long hiatus, Alice in Chains re-formed in 2006 with DuVall taking over for the late Layne Stayley, who passed away in 2002.

Now all they have to do is decide what they're going to call themselves. I personally don't have a problem with sticking with AIC, but so many people are against this.

If you know Will then you know he's one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet and he only wants to do the right thing by the band. If you've seen him sing with the rest of the guys you can tell how much fun they're having.

Can't wait to hear the new stuff.

If they're going to be performing the Layne Staley material as the bulk of their live sets, then they can't call themselves anything but Alice in Chains. Period.

I saw a clip of them doing "Man in the Box" in 2006 at a festival in Germany and DuVall was OK (he actually croaked a little bit). Of course I can't judge his work with the band based on one song. So I await more and the new material as well.
