Seattle rockers return with their first album in five years and the lead single is already a social media success

It’s been confirmed that there will be a new Alice In Chains album, and it’s news fans have been waiting patiently for. The album will be called Rainer Fog and it will be released on 24 August. It is the band’s first release since 2013’s Grammy-nominated The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.

There has been speculation surrounding the album with the band due to kick off a European and North American tour this month. And fans were sent into a spin when the first single The One You Know was released in May. The song has been well received, having already amassed over 2.4 million views on YouTube. While the second single So Far Under is being hailed as a return to the band’s original sound.

About the latest single, singer William DuVall said: “It’s about feeling completely up against it… It was inspired by personal circumstances, as well as events in the wider world… The lyric is a cold, hard assessment of a difficult situation but the music has a message all [of] its own.” 

DuVall added, “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.”
