VIDEO: Alice in Chains Drops ‘The One You Know,’ Band’s First New Song in 5 Years
Track hails from alternative rock pioneers' upcoming album 6th studio albumMay 4, 2018
Praise the gods of rock and roll, Alice in Chains has just unleashed a brand-new single.
On Friday, the Seattle-based band released “The One You Know,” its first new material in five years. The track is set to appear on Alice in Chains’ upcoming album, reportedly due out this summer—its latest since 2013’s “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.”
The Adam Mason-directed music video (above) boasts rats, sex, and microscopic shenanigans aplenty along with footage of the band rocking out in an eerie red light, as if Jerry Cantrell and company are putting on a concert inside a submarine.
Cantrell—the band’s founder, lead guitarist, and co-lead vocalist (along with William DuVall, who in 2006 replaced departed legend Layne Staley)—spoke recently about his band’s forthcoming effort. “There’s some really heavy shit, some really ugly stuff, some real beautiful stuff, some weirdo trippy shit,” he told Guitar World. “It’s good!”
The band hasn’t yet announced a debut date or track listing for what will be its sixth studio album, but fans needn’t fret as they are currently in the midst a massive world tour. Get Alice in Chains’ tour date information here and watch the official music video for “The One You Know” (above).
