Alice In Chains have announced a new movie project inspired by their latest album “Rainier Fog.” The 90-minute sci-fi film, which is titled “Black Antenna,” is being produced/directed by Adam Mason and it will be released as ten videos starting early next year. Each clip will feature a different song from the album. Mason commented:
“I’m a longtime fan of the band and this was an opportunity to do something fresh and inspiring from an indie filmmaking side. The sound and vision between album and film are closely intertwined – it was a brilliant synergy that led to a really unique project.”
Drummer Sean Kinney added:
“We’ve always toyed with the idea of creating videos for every song on one of our albums. Not only did we do that for ‘Rainier Fog‘, it got totally out of hand and we made a whole goddamn movie. Everything that will be seen in the videos will be footage from ‘Black Antenna‘ to preface the complete film’s release.”

Alice In Chains have premiered a new video for their song “Never Fade.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Rainier Fog.” William DuVall commented:
“The ‘Never Fade‘ video is a continuation of ‘The One You Know‘. The full story will gradually be revealed. For now, check out what we love to do best – play live and tell a story with our music.”
Alice In Chains paid tribute to the late Burt Reynolds during their September 8 show in Irving, TX by combining the cover art for “Dirt” with the actor’s infamous Cosmopolitan nude photo shoot and displaying it on the video screens. You can find that image in the below Instagram post. Reynolds passed away on September 6 at the age of 82.
Alice In Chains played a special acoustic set atop the Space Needle in Seattle, WA yesterday (August 21) and some footage of the performance has been shared HERE. The band were the first to play on “The Loupe”, which is the world’s first and only revolving glass floor located 500 feet in the air. That addition to the landmark was part of a recent $100 million dollar renovation. SiriusXM will broadcast the performance on August 31 at 5pm ET/PT.
Alice In Chains will be releasing their new album “Rainier Fog” on Friday (August 24) and the band will be celebrating with an album release show at a secret location in their hometown of Seattle, WA. The group have hid 10 signed copies of the effort in the city and fans that find them will get two tickets to the concert. Hints will be posted on the group’s Instagram story.
