Video: Alice In Chains go Spinal Tap
Alice In Chains have released a comedy short in the spirit of This Is Spinal Tap. View it below.
The video is designed to promote new album The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, due out on May 13.
Joking aside, AIC are committed to ensuring the quality of their musical output. That’s one of the reasons the new record took four years to follow acclaimed comeback title Black Gives Way To Blue.
Guitarist Jerry Cantrell tells Ultimate Guitar: “It just took what it took. That’s kind of been our motto – whatever it takes to fucking make a great record.
“It doesn’t matter what it costs or how long it’s going to be. We’re not putting something out that we feel is even remotely half-baked. We’ve always had a pretty healthy vision of what we want musically.
“While we don’t spend a whole lot of time looking back and listening to old records, we’re well aware of what those records are and the level we achieved. In our minds we’re not gonna dip below that. If people don’t like it, that’s a whole other thing. But if we’re satisfied to a certain level then we win every time.
“I’ve been proud of every record we’ve put out in that way including the last one and this one too. This one is a strong fucking record.”
