Statement as issued Monday by the Embassy Theatre:
Los Angeles, CA (January 14, 2013) – As they gear up for the spring release of their much-anticipated new album, multi-platinum rock band ALICE IN CHAINS have announced a North American tour and will include a stop at the Embassy Theatre in Fort Wayne on May 21.
This past Thursday, the band teamed with VEVO to premiere the official companion clip for new track “Hollow.” Shot by award-winning director Roboshobo (Metallica, Mastodon, GreenDay), the hypnotically mind-trippy “Hollow” captures a man closed off and losing himself in an empty repetition of daily tasks until his last thread with reality is completely severed. The video can be seen at http://vevo.ly/U7WPDg and the song, which hit the top 10 on the iTunes Rock Chart, is available at http://t.co/HE12JnVT.
The video follows the recent release of a “Hollow” lyric clip that was created by fans and comprised of images submitted through Instagram.
Set for a spring 2013 release, Alice In Chains’ upcoming album was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Nick Raskulinecz (FooFighters, Deftones), who also produced the band’s hugely successful 2009 release BLACK GIVES WAY TO BLUE. That album entered Billboard’s Top 200 at No. 5, sold over one million copies, spawned two No. 1 hit singles ("Check My Brain" and "Your Decision") and a third (“Lesson Learned”) that went top 10, earned two Grammy nominations and saw the band (vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell, vocalist/guitarist William DuVall, drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Inez) headlining a sold-out international tour that wrapped at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
In a recent interview with Guitar World, Cantrell said, "In my opinion, that record stood up to anything else we’ve put out in our career. Hopefully, the new album will connect with people in the same way."
