Alice In Chains to make Massive Announcement

ALICE IN CHAINS will be making a "massive" announcement via their official web site, AliceInChains.com, on May 15 at around 4:00 p.m. PST. "It's so big that we can't even hint at what it's about but we can tell you that you'll be kicking yourself later if you don't stop by the site at around 4:00 p.m. PST on Monday," the band write in their newsletter.

ALICE IN CHAINS recently confirmed the five dates and cities for its U.S. mini-tour, beginning on May 18 in Los Angeles and ending on May 23 in New York City. The shows will all take place in either small clubs or theatres. Country music artist Shooter Jennings, son of country greats Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, will be opening for ALICE IN CHAINS on the first two dates on their upcoming U.S. club tour.

These gigs and a previously announced date at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August are the only announced North American shows for the reunited group so far, with European festival dates on tap for June and July.

As previously reported, ALICE IN CHAINS will be joined on vocals by COMES WITH THE FALL frontman William DuVall. However, surprise guest vocalists and musicians are expected to show up at each of the five U.S. dates.

My prediction:

Phil from Pantera will be their new lead singer and they will begin writing and recording new material.

I like the idea of Phil being the lead singer and them doing ozzfest. It would make ozzfest better! Even if they don't do ozzfest I hope Phil does sing for them and we get a great tour to go to.

Phil from Pantera sucks as a lead singer for AIC !!! Did anybody see the Heart special on VH1. AIC guest appeared and Phil was singing one of there songs and it sucked. That guy now that fronts the band (looks like Lenny Kravitz) sucks too. I saw Jerry at a concert look at him and laugh when he was attempting to sing Man in the Box. LOL
