ALICE IN CHAINS RELEASES VIDEO FOR 'STONE'

Image iconalice-in-chains_02.jpgAlice In Chains has posted a new music video online for "Stone," the second single released from the band's upcoming album The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. Guitarist Jerry Cantrell told us that he came up with the main riff for the song during a period last year when he was recovering from shoulder surgery and was unable to even pick up a guitar: "The riff for that is really great, and I didn't even come up with it on a guitar. I was actually, I think, rehabbing my shoulder, so I couldn't even play. I started hearing it in my head, so I grabbed my phone and started humming this riff into the phone, and a couple of months later I found it, and I'm like, 'Wow, yeah.' That was pretty great to get that one when I was kind of incapacitated and not able to play, and just kind of hummed it into the phone and remembered it."

"Stone" is the second song from the new Alice In Chains album to reach the Top 10 on rock radio. Lead single "Hollow" shot to the top of the chart shortly after its release.

The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here is due out May 28th and follows up 2009's Black Gives Way To Blue, which was the first new Alice In Chains album in 14 years.

Alice In Chains will kick off a tour to promote the new disc on April 25th in Miami Beach, including a stop in St. Louis for Pointfest. To get your Pointfest tickets CLICK HERE.
