Why the hell is Ann Wilson of Heart talking about the new Alice in Chains record? That’s what I thought when I first found out that Alice in Chains are making another record.
Then, I read that Ann Wilson is apparently an old friend of the band. How? Why? I mean, no disrespect to Heart — I just don’t get the connection. I’m guessing its solely based on locale: Heart are also from Seattle. I’d do more research on that, but I don’t have all day here people.
The grunge masters have already begun working on the the follow-up to 2009’s gold-certified album Black Gives Way To Blue, which was a fucking really good record. If you haven’t heard it, you should check it out. Solid and inspired, is what that record is.
Wilson told Ultimate Classic Rock she visited Alice in Chains this weekend at the recording studio where they’re working on their new album, which currently does not have a title and is reportedly set for release in early 2012.
Nice. I’m looking forward to 2012 already. Now I have even more reason.
Wilson said the band sounds “amazing” on the new material and said, “How can Jerry not sound amazing, but I mean, it really does — they’re a monster.”
