A month after releasing their first single in five years, alt-metal veterans Alice in Chains announced that they will perform material from a forthcoming album Sunday, Oct. 28, at Hard Rock Event Center in Hollywood.
Reserved-seat tickets for the band’s tour stop will cost $50 to $90 and will go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, June 22, via Ticketmaster.com and pay-by-phone (800-745-3000), with presale passes available for American Express cardholders at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 21, through the Hard Rock’s social-media pages. General-admission standing floor passes, meanwhile, will cost $70.
In May, the Grammy-winning quartet composed of Jerry Cantrell, drummer Sean Kinney, bassist Mike Inez and singer-guitarist William DuVall released “The One You Know,” a track filled with grungy, dissonant riffs and Cantrell’s signature growl. The group is currently on a 37-date summer tour that will conclude Sept. 15.
In a recent interview with Guitar World, Cantrell predicted a summer release for Alice in Chains’ untitled sixth album, the band’s first since 2013’s “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.” It’s “a record that has all the elements of anything you would expect from us. It’s got our fingerprint,” Cantrell tells Guitar World. The new album marks the first time Alice in Chains has recorded in their native Seattle since 1995, when the band released their self-titled third album (“Grind,” “Heaven Beside You”).
