Damn I wish he was still around. I remember watching their Unplugged show on MTV. When he came out and the audience went nuts, I got a chill. I put that album in every now and then and to this day it has the same effect. What a great fuckin band.

So, the new song is growing on me a bit....

As soon as it starts you know you are hearing Chains.

Cantrell sings for pretty much most of the song as far as I can tell so I can't say too much about the new singer. Hope he gets to really cut loose on the new album and show us what he's got. I don't think Cantrell would bring in a bum to restart the band.

I like the chorus a lot but can't help but wonder how awesome it would sound if it were Layne belting it out. Layne's voice is irreplaceable.

The song seems like it drags a bit with some lyrics that seem like filler.

But, fuck it. Chains is back! I'll pick up the disc for sure.

The new singer is Comes with the Fall vocalist William DuVall. I'm not too familiar with their work, but I caught them live when they opened for Jerry Cantrell, when I went to review the gig at London's Mean Fiddler, back in the early 00's.

During Cantrell's set they played a lot of Alice In Chains classics, which I was really ecstatic about, considering I unfortunately never got to see AIC live (great band!). DuVall came on to fill in for Layne Staley's vocals. Obviously he's not a patch on the late Staley, who was one of the greatest frontmen of recent times. But never the less, Duvall did a fine job, and the late AIC singer would have been proud.

I'm a little skeptical about a Alice in Chains reunion without Layne Staley. For me Staley together with Jerry Cantrell are AIC. Staley not being there, seems to be a Jerry Cantrell solo project. But I want to be open minded and not dismiss it, until I've heard the album in it's entirety. I'll be downloading the LP for sure!

Yeah, this new AIC song is really starting to grow on me now. The more I listen, the more I am interested in getting the new album :

new song has solidified with me as a possible killer tune for the ages. nothing like the early stuff, but i'm a fanboy for that shit, and i don't expect anything to ever touch that kinda quality again.

don't care much for the new video though. seems pointless. just show the band, in a room, playing the song. get the sad looking nobody's out of rock videos. i don't care about your shitty life.

Agreed. Why cant they just show the band rockin' out ?

I'm liking the tune and it's good to see them soldiering on without Layne. I'm open to the idea of a band continuing with a new frontman. Hey, if it worked for AC/DC....

Yeah, you're both right. For a comeback single, we want to be seeing the new AIC rocking in the video! We want to get a look at what this new era in the band's history is going to be like; get a feel for them playing live.

AC/DC are one of the very few bands to have two great frontmen, in Bon Scott and then Brian Johnson. Sadly, the same didn't work for Black Sabbath after Ozzy left.

I'm actually really digging the new song. You can tell it's AIC right from the start.
