Alice In Chains has recently announced they are in the recording process of their Sixth LP, returning to Seattle to find their sound again.
“I just feel in 2017, it’s time for Alice in Chains to go back to Seattle – drink that water, breathe that air,” bassist Mike Inez said this summer on the “Let There Be Talk” podcast. “My Heart family’s up there. There’s just such a history – every street corner for us is a memory; crazy shit happened or some beautiful stuff. Seattle’s a really special place, especially this time of year. It’s the best.”

April 28 – Boston, MA @ House of Blues
April 30 – Syracuse, NY @ Landmark Theatre
