SAY WELCOME BACK TO AN OLD FAVORITE

In 1987 in Seattle Washington, Jerry Cantrell and Layne Staley formed Alice in Chains, a band whose music incorporates grunge, heavy metal, rock and alternative. Although Stanley’s death put a halt in the band’s success, new lead singer William DuVall has allowed the group to continue producing their distinctive sound. See them live this week as they celebrate their first upcoming album in 14 years.
