Alice in Chains are prepping the follow-up to 2013’s The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. Set to record in Seattle next month, the album is tentatively scheduled for a late-2017 or early-2018 release.
“We are just gearing up to make a record,” guitarist Jerry Cantrell told Good Celebrity. “We’ll be moving up to Seattle in about a month and record the record over the summer out there in the same studio we recorded our third record in. So it’ll be kind of fun — go home, make a Seattle record. Hometown boys in a hometown studio.”
Asked whether or not fans can expect the new record to continue the group’s grunge legacy, Cantrell said simply, “Hey, this is what we do. At this age, I can’t really do much else.”
“We do us, and we’re lucky enough to be able to have the opportunity to still be doing it and making good music and having a good time.”
