The new Alice in Chains album, the second with new singer William Duvall, is coming together nicely. The first single “Hallow” was made available yesterday via iTunes. There’s a fan-made lyric video available online but a real video produced by the band is expected out soon. As for the new album, the band’s fifth studio album, and second since taking on Duvall, will be out sometime this Spring. We’ll keep you posted.
From the grave
Speaking of new music—anytime this kind of thing happens, it sparks my interest. There’s a new single from Jimi Hendrix. Yeah, that’s right, the guitar legend who choked on his own vomit to join the 27 club back in 1970. Well, the tune “Somewhere,” which features Hendrix on guitar and vocals was recorded two years before he died and is a completely new version than a previously released track. The tune will be made available for sale February 5th. An album of 12 previously unreleased tunes will be out March 5th.
Unique lyric video
Three Days Grace have released a new video for the tune “The High Road,” but just as so many other artists are doing, it’s just a lyric video. This lyric video is a bit different than all the others as it has a guy standing in the middle of a dark street wearing a hoodie and a white cloth over his face. They lyrics to the tune are projected onto the white cloth mask. There’s a ton of different effects on the video that make it more watchable than other lyric videos. “The High Road” is the next single from the album Transit of Venus. Three Days Grace hits the road with POD and Shinedown for a tour starting in Moline, Illinois, February 1st.
The latest work from former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch is available streaming online. His new band is called Love and Death. They’ve made the song “I W8 4 U” available to stream via YouTube (at this link). Their debut album Between Here and Lost will be out January 22nd.
