Alice In Chains Team Up With Puck Hcky For New Merch Collection

Alice In Chains have teamed up with hockey-themed brand Puck Hcky for a new merch collection. You can see what they have to offer HERE. Matt Marini, CEO of Puck Hcky, said the following about the collaboration:

“WOW! Had I been told back in 1991, when I saw them at an intimate, one-off-show at the Silver Dollar Saloon in Lansing, Michigan, that someday I would be involved in an Alice In Chains collaboration, I never would’ve believed it! Total dream come true for us. This is the band that truly brought the Seattle sound to all of us lucky fans and they continue to do so now! Every release Alice In Chains has put out has been special, from the heavier material of ‘Facelift’ and ‘Dirt’ to the acoustic jams of ‘Jar Of Flies’ to the new records, we love it all. It is an honor for Puck Hcky to be releasing this collection that we designed together, we could not be more thrilled! Alice In Chains is on the daily playlist at Puck Hcky, and always will be.”

We’re proud to call Alice In Chains hometown heroes but we know we share them with the world.

It’s a testament to their lasting impact that this talented group of musicians has come together to pay tribute to the band’s contributions to music and pop culture. We’re able to show the next generation of creators what’s possible through the funds raised at the event that support our youth development programs, our community engagement and access initiatives, and of course, the cutting-edge exhibitions people from around the world come to Seattle to enjoy.

While this entire night of exclusive performances is free to view for all, our hope is to raise $1 million to support the museum in this difficult and unprecedented year.”

Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell continued:

“It feels truly special to receive the MoPOP Founders Award in our home town of Seattle. It’s also humbling to be joined by so many of our friends, peers and heroes to rock some AIC tunes. I hope people watching enjoy the show as much as we did putting it together. A big hearty thanks to everyone who participated in making this virtual thing happen during these strange times. Music has the power to unite, heal and inspire. It is all of ours. Let’s continue to create and celebrate that which feeds the soul. Rawk on!”

Alice In Chains’ Sean Kinney added:

“When we got to make our first record, I thought, great, we will be able to make one record, do our thing and hope for the best. Now, 30 years later to get this award and still be touring and making music is the most amazing feeling. We are brothers with all of the craziness that goes with it. This is for Layne, Mike, and for all of us now. We can’t wait to get back out on the road once this hellish pandemic is behind us.”

Alice In Chains To Be Honored With 2020 Museum Of Pop Culture Founders Award

Alice In Chains are set to be honored with this year’s Museum Of Pop Culture (MoPOP) Founders Award. The award will be presented during a special virtual event on December 1.

The following was said about the event [via Blabbermouth]:

“This one-night-only benefit will feature performances by ALICE IN CHAINS, as well as an acclaimed lineup of guest and youth musicians who will put their own twist on some of the band’s most iconic songs.

For the first time ever, this annual event will be moving from MoPOP’s Sky Church to an online platform where it will be accessible and open for all, giving pop culture lovers across the world an opportunity to connect and become a part of its creative community.

While this year’s Founders Award will stream for free and be open to all, like many arts organizations around the country, MoPOP has been hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis. As a community supported non-profit museum and in-person gathering space, closing its doors was especially difficult.

All proceeds raised through Founders Award will provide relief by allowing MoPOP to continue to serve its community, reach young people, and preserve its shared pop culture history during this difficult time.”

The band also tweeted the following:
