Cantrell and his band just put out their latest album "The Devil put Dinosaurs Here" late May. The album contains 12 tracks and clocks in a runtime of an hour and five minutes, reports Ultimate-guitar.com.
Alice in Chains reunited in 2005. The band never officially disbanded but from 1996, substance abuse by one of the band members, Layne Staley, always interfered with their performance. He died in 2002. The band returned to the studios with their 2009 hit album "Black Gives Way to Blue" and another new member, William DuVall.
However, the band still misses their old member.
"I don't think there's closure, per se. That seems to me like the wrong word. You obviously move on and the world keeps spinning and the gigs keep coming and stuff like that, but sometimes, especially like on the tour bus late at night when there are no sounds going on and it's really silent, I start thinking about Layne and stuff like that, still to this day. And I don't ever want to stop thinking about Layne," Mike Inez, bassist of Alice in Chains said to The Columbian in an interview.
