Rock legends Alice In Chains have finally announced their new album, titled Rainier Fog, and have treated us to a new track.
Rainier Fog is the band’s first album in five years, with their previous release being 2013’s The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.
On top of that, the band just released the album’s second single ‘So Far Under’. It follows earlier single ‘The One You Know’, which dropped back in early May.
Speaking about ‘So Far Under’, Alice In Chains vocalist/guitarist William DuVall said, “It’s about feeling completely up against it – outnumbered, surrounded, facing seemingly unbeatable odds and being really pissed off about it.
“It was inspired by personal circumstances, as well as events in the wider world. But it’s not as resigned to defeat as it may seem. The lyric is a cold, hard assessment of a difficult situation but the music has a message all its own. There’s still room to flip the script.
“Every aspect of writing and recording this song will always be remembered with a lot of joy – from recording the basic tracks and the guitar solo at Studio X in Seattle to doing further overdubs at Nick Raskulinecz’s studio in rural Tennessee.
“Everyone in the band and our studio team really stepped up and knocked it out of the park on this one. We’re extremely proud of this song and the entire album.”
Alice In Chains recently gave a beautiful tribute to the late Vinnie Paul, dedicating their 1993 hit ‘Nutshell’ to the Pantera drummer who sadly passed away last week.
Listen to ‘So Far Under’ below. Rainier Fog is scheduled to be released on Friday, 24th August.
