About Alice In Chains

Alice in Chains was the brainchild of Layne Staley, who grouped up with Cantrell and Kinney's original funk band, Diamond Lie. Diamond Lie subsequently broke up and the three got together as "Alice in Chains". A local promoter, Randy Hauser, offered the band a chance for some demo recordings. Despite some setbacks along the way, their demo reached Columbia Records who signed the group. The first song that brought the band into the limelight was "Man in the Box", a classic example of grunge style music. The band's first complete album, "Facelift" was released a few months later and made it to number 42 among the billboard top 200. By the end of the year, "Facelift" was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.

The band well known for its impressive live performances landed the opening slot for the Clash of the Titans gaining popularity with heavy metal fans. The group's second album "Dirt", was released with very good reviews. Following its release, member Mike Starr left and was replaced by Mike Inez. Dirt was certified platinum by the end of 1the year, however its dark lyrics formulated rumors that Layne Staley was addicted to heroin. Alice in Chains bravely countered such criticism, continuing a string of live performances while "Dirt" crossed sales of three million copies. The band's first EP "Jar of Flies" instantly topped the charts adding to their list of successful albums.

In 2002 fans were shocked to learn that Layne Staley had died due to an overdose of heroin and cocaine effectively putting an end to the band's legacy. The band performed only once after the death of its founder. A number of different performers filled in for Staley but the position was finally filled by William Duvall. The group's come back album, "Black gives way to Blue" was released in 2009 followed by an international tour of Europe and a very catchy performance in Australia's Sound wave Festival.

Despite the gap left by Staley, the fans love Duvall. In a live concert, by the end of the first song, the audience rushes forward to embrace the new lead singer. To his credit, he does not try to imitate Staley's style but carries on with his own, bringing 'magic' to the band, and helping them rise from the ashes. After years of solitude Alice in Chains is back on the road, they're determined to make an impression unlike any other, and this revival of grunge and metal music is one that must not be missed.
