Alice in Chains – November Tour and UK only single: ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’

Alice in Chains have returned once again in 2013 with new album ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’. Heavy and raw, AiC maintain their power, strength and uniquely influential sound. If 2009’s album ‘Black Gives Way to Blue’ was an acknowledgement to past days, difficult times and re-birth, than the new album firmly establishes them once again as one of the power players in alternative metal, making as relevant today, as they were in the past. Rousing and mesmerizing guitars riffs, complimented by DuVall and Cantrell on vocals – one of the must listen albums of the year.

Having played this years Download festival to critical acclaim, the boys are back in the UK with a November tour and UK exclusive single; the title track and full six minutes long (so unlikely to get commercial radio airtime) AiC present exclusively for us: ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’. This track takes “aim at fundamental belief systems and the inflexibility of conservative doctrines, the song challenges reactionists straight between the eyes with the chorus intoning, ‘The devil put dinosaurs here / Jesus don’t like a queer / No problem with faith / Just fear’.”

Jerry Cantrell is keen to come and play to UK; “ fans have always been very good to us and we’re very much looking forward to playing for all of them in November.” AiC’s setlist may feature old classics but these gigs will be far from a nostalgia trip. Right here, right now – AiCs future is bright, current and powerful – in their own, unique way. And live – well worth forking out your hard earn cash for.

Tour starts 9th November and you can see them at the Birmingham 02 Academy on 13th November, with support from Ghost and Scar the Martyr. Tickets still available at @ £30. And for avid fans – exclusive VIP meet and greet from £115 – also still available.
