If you liked the last two Alice in Chains albums as much as I did, then you understand the need to see them live. Since that goal is hard to achieve in Greece, especially nowadays, my wish finally came true in Manchester.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, eight previously unreleased songs from late ALICE IN CHAINS lead singer Layne Staley are currently being restored and properly mixed by Seattle-based audio designer Jesse Holt. The tunes all have vocal tracks from Staley on them and Holt has asked Staley's MAD SEASON bandmate, PEARL JAM guitarist Mike McCready, for help in completing them.
Reportedly among the songs is "Things You Do", which has surfaced online in various forms in the years since Staley died of a drug overdose in April 2002.

ALICE IN CHAINS bassist Mike Inez has revealed in a new interview with Framus & Warwick that the band has returned to the studio to begin work on the long-awaited follow-up to 2013's "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" album.
"Today I'm leaving this studio," where the interview took place, "and going to another studio, and I'm gonna make a bunch of racket," Inez said during the chat, which can be seen in four parts below.
"Yeah, we're hard at work," he continued. "We're always doing something — I mean, it's just what we do. We just play, and usually everything else will come together.

ALICE IN CHAINS will enter Studio X in Seattle later this month to begin recording the long-awaited follow-up to 2013's "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" album for a tentative early 2018 release. Helming the sessions once again will be Nick Raskulinecz, who produced the band's last two studio efforts, 2009's "Black Gives Way To Blue" and the aforementioned "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here".

Since the festival season in Greece this year isn’t exactly to my taste, a trip in order to see Metallica’s ‘By Request’ tour was necessary. After Italy in 2011 and Switzerland in 2012 it was time to visit Czech Republic, for a concert that took place in a swimming pool, as Hetfield accurately put it, but that only made it even more magical.

ALICE IN CHAINS is preparing to enter the studio to begin recording its new album for a tentative late 2017 or early 2018 release.
Speaking to Good Celebrity on May 1 at the tenth-anniversary George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic at Lakeside Country Club in Toluca Lake, California, ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell stated about the band's plans for the long-awaited follow-up to 2013's "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here": "We are just gearing up to make a record. 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."

Alternative Nation published this very interesting piece of news and we share it here on Rockpages:
Alice In Chains singer/guitarist Jerry Cantrell revealed what band started the Grunge movement on an international level in a new interview on Jonesy’s Jukebox.
The first band that started it all as far as the rest of the world kind of getting opened up to it is Soundgarden, absolutely. Soundgarden got signed to A&M, that was the first major label signing, and they put out a record. Mother Love Bone was second on Polygram I believe, unfortunately Andy [Wood] passed away right as that record came out. We were the third major band signed to Columbia, and our records kind of came out in quick succession. Nirvana and Pearl Jam came after.”

Sometime we said that we really wanted to watch AC/DC in Greece, because they’never been here. The dream became reality and the same happened with other bands like Aerosmith, Bon Jovi and a lot more bands that satisfied their fans by paying a visit in our country. However, the thirst rock’n’roll create can never be really quenched. Therefore, picks out 10 bands that would love to see play a show in Greece… promoters this is for you!
