American grunge legend Alice In Chains released their latest studio album “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here” in 2013. After a four-year break, the band began working on a new studio album.

The band’s bassist Mike Inez announced that they had entered the studio for their new album in an interview with Framus & Warwick. He said:

Today I’m leaving this studio [in which the interview took place] and going to another studio, and I’m gonna make a bunch of racket.

Yeah, we’re hard at work. We’re always doing something. It’s just what we do – we just play, and usually everything else will come together.

When we go into these studios, this is kind of like our clubhouse, this is the place that we go, and we try not to make this business. This is fun, and we try to make our work environment fun for each other.

Being in the studio for 20 hours a day isn’t fun, but it’s a great job. But we try to make that our clubhouse and separate that from the business, kind of. So we’re still in that – playing in the sandbox, kind of, for this new record anyways. We’re still getting together in the same city, and plugging in in the same room.

Today is actually our first day, and I’m already late, ’cause I’m here talking to you. [Laughs] So it shows you how professional we still are.”

There is no information yet on the release date of the new album. But on our estimates, it can be released at the end of this year or in the first quarter of next year.
