Alice In Chains have revealed that producer Nick Raskulinecz will work with the band once again on their new album. Mike Inez confirmed the news on the Let There Be Talk podcast:
Inez said the following:
“We’re going back home to do a record, really. The last two were in L.A., and they were cool. I just feel in 2017, it’s time for Alice In Chains to go back to Seattle—drink that water, breathe that air. My Heart family’s up there. There’s just such a history—every street corner for us is a memory; crazy shit happened or some beautiful stuff. Seattle’s a really special place, especially this time of year. It’s the best.”
He also added:
“This [upcoming album], we’re not sure where it’s gonna land. We wanna partner with somebody, and we’ll see where it goes. I mean, we financed [‘Black Gives Way To Blue‘] on our own too, so we’re not too worried about that stuff. We’ve just gotta get it out to… Alice is a global band, so it has to be a significant label that has the infrastructure where you can get this stuff in stores in, like, fucking Singapore when we play or South America… wherever.”
The band plan to hit Studio X in Seattle, WA later this month to record the effort.
