Hands up who is ready for a brand new Alice In Chains album? Well you’re all about to get your wishes!
The first new album from the Seattle grunge legends has been titled as “Rainier Fog”, a tribute to their hometown, and is set to be released on the 24th of August through their new record label home BMG.
On top of their recently released single, The One You Know, Alice In Chains have today revealed a second song from Rainier Fog called So Far Under, which can be enjoyed below:
For the story behind So Far Under, here’s AiC’s vocalist William Duvall:
“It’s about feeling completely up against it – outnumbered, surrounded, facing seemingly unbeatable odds and being really pissed off about it. It was inspired by personal circumstances, as well as events in the wider world. But it’s not as resigned to defeat as it may seem. The lyric is a cold, hard assessment of a difficult situation but the music has a message all its own. There’s still room to flip the script. Every aspect of writing and recording this song will always be remembered with a lot of joy – from recording the basic tracks and the guitar solo at Studio X in Seattle to doing further overdubs at Nick Raskulinecz’s studio in rural Tennessee. Everyone in the band and our studio team really stepped up and knocked it out of the park on this one. We’re extremely proud of this song and the entire album.”
The recording of Rainier Fog took place in Seattle, marking the first time that Alice In Chains had returned home to record an album in over twenty years. For the third album in a row, the world famous Nick Raskulinecz is handling production duties, teaming up with Paul Figueroa on the sound engineering side.
